"Last night, just before midnight, two Uptown men were shot west of Truman College at 1255 West Wilson. Soon after, at approximately 12:30AM, another man from the south side of the city was shot near Uplift High School. The police believe these shootings are part of the same incident and believe they are gang-related. At this time, no one has been arrested.
The incident is still under investigation with Area 3 Detectives. Police presence has been increased in the area.
