Shooting on Quebec Near Park Place
At about 10:15 pm this evening a barrage of gunfire erupted on Quebec Place. From the gunfire I heard, there were easily 15-20 shots fired. Police responded relatively quickly, and at least two victims is are known to have been shot. One is a woman that was on Quebec, the other a driver that may or may not have been a bystander heading south on Park Place. The driver crashed his car in addition to the gunshot wounds. The extent of their injuries are not known at this time, but they do not appear to be life threatening. I’ll report more as details come my way.
Update: As of 11:19 pm, helicopters were added to the scene.
Update from Commander Kishter: A shooting occurred at Park Place and Quebec. One adult female was struck in the leg and was transported to an area hospital. A second adult male was also struck in the upper torso and attempted to drive away in his vehicle causing him to crash near Quebec and Warder Streets. He was transported to an area hospital in serious condition. The matter is currently being investigated by the Third District Detectives.
I’ve also heard, but have not confirmed, that the driver in serious condition died. Does anyone know if this is in fact the case?
Update: As of this morning, Quebec is still taped off. In speaking with one of the officers, there are no new details and the investigation is ongoing.
