Investigators: Two shootings linked

August 23, 2010

Police say two shootings just a few miles and mere minutes apart Sunday afternoon appear to be the work of the same people. Officers responded to the first shooting at 3 p.m. when a man jumped out of a speeding car in the 3400 block of Butler Avenue after he was shot in the arm. A short time later, they responded to another shooting in the 3500 block of Kinnear Avenue. There, a 16-year-old had been shot. He was taken to the hospital in good condition. Investigators haven’t identified a motive for the shooting yet.
