The condition of the male victim wasn’t immediately available Friday and it’s unclear what led to the shootings. O’Neal’s death is the 64th homicide for the city in 2021, a 58% increase over this time last year.
Investigators recovered several shell casings between the two crime scenes, but they did not locate a weapon. It was not immediately clear how the two victims were connected.
“We have a lot of really strong leads,” said Genson, who heads the police department’s homicide unit. “We just need to vet everything, make sure everything is what it is. I feel good about this investigation, the direction it is headed.”
