Triple Shooting in Cedar Rapids
CEDAR RAPIDS, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Cedar Rapids Police are investigating a triple shooting on the city's southeast side. Officers were called over the noon hour to 1232 3rd Avenue SE Apt. #3 for a reported shooting. When they arrived, they found three victims with gunshot wounds. All three were taken to area hospitals. Police say one of the victims is in critical condition and the other two are in serious condition.
Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids would not comment on the shooting victims, but would say the hospital is now under a "controlled access." That's a heightened security measure often used when shooting victims are brought to a hospital.
Investigators say the victims were standing outside when they were shot. After speaking to witnesses, authorities say they are looking for two black men, wearing black sweatshirts and pants. They were last seen leaving the scene in a green van. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-CS-CRIME.
