SHOTS FIRED: Shooting May Be Gang Related
Robert Turner literally dodged a bullet Thursday night.
A total of four rounds hit his home at 1650 Cleveland Avenue.
A witness saw a silver car take-off from the scene, and patrol officers spotted one that matched the description.
Police won’t officially tell us if the drive-by shootings are gang-related, but in a report, the officer who arrested 20-year-year-old Sergio Gonzales writes about Gonzales and the 15-year-old who was also arrested that “both suspects are known Norteanos gang members.”
In the police report from the Eleventh Street shooting, just minutes earlier, the woman who lives there said that her brother used to be in a gang, The Southsiders, and that the Norteanos are angry at her brother for them going to jail over a killing last summer.
We asked if it’s not only possible each shooting is gang-related, but that the three shootings themselves are related.
Sgt. Larina Blad told us, “It is possible, but we don’t want to limit that at this time. We don’t want to be presumptuous. We want to make sure that we get the right person responsible.”
