Suspect who tried to forcibly enter apartment shot victim through the door
A 15-year-old was shot multiple times while in her apartment building. Monday afternoon at around 1:40 p.m., city units were dispatched to Keenan Oak Apartments for the incident. Cpl. Harris spoke to a woman on scene who stated her sister had been shot. Harris found 3 shell casings on the stairwell leading up to the apartment. He noticed four holes in the door of the apartment. The woman told him that she heard someone knocking on the door, so she and two others, including her sister, went to the door. She opened it to see who had knocked when the suspect tried to forcibly enter the apartment. As they held the door closed to keep the person from coming in, the suspect fired several shots at the door, striking the woman’s sister multiple times. She was hospitalized for her injuries. There is no word on her condition, and the identity of the shooter was not known at the time of the report. The case has been turned over to investigations.
