Police respond to string of shootings

Police responded to an outbreak of gun violence across the valley Thursday with at least four confirmed shootings. In at least one incident, a man died. The incidents do not appear to be related.

Metro Police confirm a man was shot at a room in the Siegel Suites on Boulder Highway at approximately 7:45 p.m.

He was shot in the leg following a domestic disturbance with someone he knows. His wound is not life-threatening. Police say the suspect is not in custody.

Thursday's string of violence began at approximately 3 p.m. at a home near Twain Avenue and Boulder Highway.

Property managers received word that someone was trespassing in a home in the area. A man and a woman who live in the home went to investigate and found an unknown person in the home.

A fight ensued, and police say the intruder punched one of the homeowners in the face several times. That's when the property manager shot the suspect.

The suspect was taken to the hospital where he later died. Detectives are investigating if this was an act of self-defense.

The property manager has a concealed carry permit. The suspect's identity has not been released.

At approximately 6 p.m., another shooting occurred near Dumont Boulevard and Cambridge Street.

Police haven't released a lot of information, but there was a large crime scene around a nearby Boys and Girls Club.

8 News NOW has learned an adult was shot and taken to the hospital. The extent of his injuries are not known.

The Boys and Girls Club does not seem to be involved in this case.

Late Thursday evening, there was an apparent drive-by shooting in the northwest valley near Jones Boulevard and Washington Avenue. A man was shot in the leg, but is expected to survive.
