On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, at 12:41 a.m., East Precinct officers responded to the report of a shooting in an apartment located on the 12200 block of Southeast Ramona Street.
As officers responded to the location, emergency dispatchers broadcast information that one adult male was shot. When officers arrived they located two injured men inside an apartment on the east side of Southeast Ramona Street. One of the adult males had what appeared to be a serious non-life-threatening gunshot wound and the other male had been assaulted. Officers immediately applied medical aid to the man who was shot, while additional officers searched the apartment and surrounding outside area for suspects.
Once officers completed a search of the apartment and determined there were no suspects in the apartment, emergency medical responders entered the apartment, provided additional medical aid and transported the man to an area hospital by ambulance. The second male who was assaulted did not require transport to an area hospital, but stated he would seek medical attention at a later time.
During the investigation, officers learned three suspects were invited to the victims' apartment as part of a business transaction. When the three men arrived they attempted to rob the victims, at which time, one victim was shot and the other assaulted. The suspects were described as three black males. Preliminary information suggests the victims knew the suspects.
The suspects have not been located at this time but based on information learned at this time in the investigation, it is not believed the suspects are an immediate threat to the public.
