DMPD: victim of Thursday morning shooting dies



NOON TIME. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US? TODD: IT HAPPENED AROUND 7:05 THIS MORNING. TAKE A LOOK AT THE APARTMENT COMPLEX BEHIND ME. THERE IS ALWAYS A CRIME SCENE TAPE. INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL HERE TAKING PHOTOS OF WHAT HAPPENED. WE SHOT A VIDEO EARLIER THIS MORNING AND CAN SHOW YOU THIS. POLICE RECEIVED A CALL TO INVESTIGATE A SHOOTING. THEY FOUND AAN M WITH A SHOT WOUND. HE DID NOT RESPOND ON TIME. FIRE DEPARTMENT DOCTORS PERFORM CPR, AS DO THE POLICE. HE WAS BROUGHT TO MERCY ONE MEDICAL CENTER WHERE WE DID NOT HAVE A CONDITION REPORT EARLIER BUT JUST AFTER 11PM POLICE TOLD US HE WAS DIE AND THAT MEANS THIS IS THE SIXTH KILLING TO DES MOINES THIS YEAR. WE TALKED TO A NEIGHBOR WHO SAID HE HEARD THE SHOOTING IN THE APARTMENT JUST BELOW HE LIVED. HE IS NOT SURE WHAT HAPPENED, AND POLICE SAID LATE THIS MORNING THAT IT WAS A TARGET SHOT AND THAT THIS PARTICULAR NEIGHBORHOOD IS REALLY NOT LINKED TO THIS VIOLENCE. >> IT’S UNFORTUNATE WE ARE SEEING THESE INCIDENTS ALL OVER THE CITY. IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE PEOPLE INVOLVED. YOU CAN TAKE YOUR CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR FROM ONE NEIGHBORHOOD TO ANOTHER, AND IT SHOULD NOT REFLECT THAT NEIGHBORHOOD. THIS IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING I THINK THAT GETS A LOT OF PEOPLE’S ATTENTION JUST BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION. TODD: DES MOINES POLICE SERGEANT SAYS WHILE WE INTERVIEWED HIM, DES MOINES POLICE DETECTORS WERE NEARBY, INTERVIEWING WITNESSES IN THIS CASE. WE HAVE NO SUSPECT YET, BUT THEY ARE DEFINITELY WORKING ON THIS, AND HE SAYS WE MAY HAVE MORE UPDATES ON THIS LATER IN THE DAY. WE ARE LIVE IN DES MOINES NEAR DRAKE UNIVERSITY, T
