Around 12:06 a.m. on that said morning, police were called to Cumberbatch Street in the old capital, where they saw 21-year-old Ryan Foster with a gunshot wound to the upper back and 31-year-old Ryne Mckenzie with a gunshot wound to the shoulder.

The men were taken to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) for treatment and they told officers that while riding on bicycles near Jones Street and McKay Boulevard, two men opened fire on them, causing their injuries for which Foster was treated then released and Mckenzie is hospitalized in a stable condition.

A few hours later at around 5:12 a.m., police again responded to a shooting incident where they saw 21-year-old Kieron Shaquille Moss lying on Levi Slusher Street with multiple gunshot wounds to his head and body.

Officers were told that Moss was walking with two females when a man got off from behind a motorcycle and fired shots at him, killing him almost instantly as he was pronounced dead on arrival at the KHMH.

Police investigation into these incidents continue.
