East Precinct Detectives Search for Suspects in Unprovoked Shooting


East Precinct detectives are searching for the two occupants inside a maroon Honda Odyssey van (seen in attached photos) involved in a shooting near Trinity Lane and Dickerson Pike Tuesday morning. The 22-year-old victim walked into Skyline Medical Center with a single gunshot wound to his chest following the incident.

He was skateboarding on the road behind his girlfriend when the van approached them and stopped. The victim’s girlfriend told detectives one of the two occupants told her boyfriend to get out of the road and shot him. The van then sped away.

The victim tried to get onto a nearby school bus, but the driver kept the door closed because of the children onboard. A truck nearby transported the victim and his girlfriend to the hospital.

The suspects are described as Hispanic males. The victim stated he was shot with a black “Draco” firearm. The victim is still recovering in the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone with information on who the suspects involved may be or recognize the van are being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
