June 28, 2019

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Des Moines police are investigating the city’s fifth homicide this year after officers say a man was shot to death in the Kirkwood Glen neighborhood.

Police say the shooting happened Friday afternoon, when officers and medics were called to the area for a report of a shooting and found the man suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to an area hospital, where he died.

Shortly after the shooting, another man showed up at the hospital with a gunshot wound not believed to be life-threatening. Police believe the shootings are connected.

Police have not announced an arrest, but say a police dog did track a possible suspect.

The names of those shot have not been released.
