The investigation into last night’s multiple-victim shooting continues. While police cannot discuss specifics of ongoing investigations, Public Safety must clarify a couple points.
First: Based on the investigation, Violent Crime Unit detectives are confident that all shooters have been accounted for from last night’s violence. The shooter(s) were among those who were injured and/or killed. Reporters have asked if a suspect in a triple homicide is on the loose, and the answer is no.
Second: In response to media inquiries, last night’s shooting was not associated in any way with the upcoming elections, a Halloween party or gathering, or recent protests.
When additional information is available, Public Safety will provide it on the blotter and social media.
