“Dear PoP,

I was getting ready to take my dog out this morning when something made me pause. I felt like I was hearing more sirens than normal. So I waited, I don’t why, I never think about things like that. Anyway, when I did go out about 6.45am, I saw several police cars, etc across from Ogden Market (I think it would be Center Street if Center crosses Ogden, never looked). Anyway, police tape is up on the side of the large apartment complex, police, detectives walking around looking at the ground. I assume they are looking for evidence.”

From Council Member Jim Graham Press Release:

“Sadly, I must inform you that, just before 6 AM this morning, three people were shot in the 1400 block of Parkwood Place. Two were shot in the head and are dead. A third victim is in critical condition. The ages and identities of the victims have not been determined, but preliminary reports are that they may have been adults. More will be known soon.

A weapon was recovered from the victim who went to the hospital.

Two Black males were seen running from the area on foot. But no suspects at this time.

Motives unclear, although there is a suggestion that they may have been gambling on the scene.

More information to be provided as it becomes available.

Councilmember Jim Graham”
