Just after 4 p.m., officers responded to the 8600 block of Utopia Drive and found “evidence leading them to believe that a shooting had occurred.” Police then were alerted of two gunshot victims at local hospitals. A 43-year-old man and 21-year-old man had non-life-threatening injures.
Just four minutes later, a 19-year-old was found with a gunshot wound to the head in the 5900 block of Crescent Avenue. An arrest was made in the shooting that injured the teen.
Police said there was no reason to believe the two Tuesday shootings were connected.
Anyone with information about the shootings is encouraged to call the TIPS Hotline at 816-474-8477.
