Police: Shooting incidents might be linked

Police are investigating whether two shooting incidents that happened just minutes apart on Monday afternoon are connected.

Around 3:30 p.m. Monday, police were dispatched to the 4100 block of High Street on a report that there was a residence that had been shot at, Logansport Police Department Det. Brad Miller said. Upon arrival, officers found two occupants inside the house. Neither were hurt, Miller said.

Officers then contacted Indiana State Police’s crime scene investigator, who later processed and secured the scene.

Around the same time, LPD officers were also dispatched to the first block of 18th Street in reference to a suicidal person, Miller said. When they arrived at the scene, Miller said officers heard what they believed to be a gunshot behind the residence. Miller also said that as officers rounded the residence, they observed an unidentified male take his own life.

ISP was called in to secure that scene as well, and

Video: Ald. Maldonado Argues With Police At Shooting Scene, Asks To Be Driven Around Closure

Footage from a cop’s bodycam shows an angry Ald. Roberto Maldonado (26th) arguing with officers and asking to be driven by police after he comes upon a road closure where investigators were working the scene of a shooting. Twice in the video, an officer asks the alderman if he’s seeking “a special favor.”

The video, obtained by CBS Chicago, shows the alderman confronting police at the shooting scene in the 3000 block of West Wabansia Avenue on Saturday, June 17.

In the video, Maldonado—who is filming the scene and says he has his children in his vehicle—is heard asking which routes he should take to get around the closure. When an officer begins to reply, Maldonado interrupts him, saying that another officer had refused to give an answer and was “very smart ass.”

After two officers then briefly discuss how far the closure extends on one street, Maldonado says, “Can anybody
