Police arrived and said two men had been shot.

One man was dead on the scene and another man was taken to the hospital in critical condition.


Channel 2 Action News was on the scene and spoke with one of the shooting victim’s grandmothers, Joann McKibbins, overnight.

Police have not identified either of the victims but McKibbins said her grandson, Dominque McKibbins, just turned 18 years old.

“A sweet, kind-hearted person,” said McKibbins. “His heart is so pure, that’s all I know about my grandson.”

McKibbins said she and her grandson’s mother are hurt.

Police are not sure what led up to the shooting.

The investigation is ongoing.
