Our CMPD Area Commander returned my call this morning, and we spoke just moments ago. As of this morning, CMPD has suspects in custody. CMPD is examining motives, such as drugs, gang activity, or robbery. Additionally, bike officers will be in the neighborhood tonight to talk to people and answer any questions.
The Observer's article has been amended with the following statement: "Detectives told reporters this morning that they don't believe the shootings were random."
From what I can discern, neither the victims nor the perpetrators were Third Ward residents. I will keep you posted as I learn more.
