Officers received a call of a shooting in progress with two people down at the location. 

When officers arrived, they found a Black male, 30, dead on the scene, another Black male, 23, who fled the scene on foot, was also shot, and a Black female, 30, was also shot. 

Officials said the woman is currently listed in critical condition and the other man is listed in stable condition at the hospital. 

Police said there were a few people who saw what happened, but they haven't received much information from them. 


Officials said surveillance video footage showed a black vehicle, which was tinted out, with no license plate, came west on Noble and stopped in the 3100 block of Noble at a specific location. 

That's when, police said, three Black males inside a vehicle began to have a verbal fight with some people standing outside in front of one of the homes. 

After the verbal fight, the driver of the vehicle began firing a long gun towards the direction of the home, and all three of the suspects retreated back to the vehicle. 

Police stated the passenger pulled out a long gun and started firing toward the home as well. 

All three of the men got into the vehicle, which is described as a black 2015-2020 either Malibu or Impala, with tinted windows and no license plate, and fled the scene going southbound on Brewster. 

The suspects appeared to be wearing some type of ski mask or face covering and appeared to be bald. 

We're told it appeared the suspects and individuals who were arguing appeared to know each other. Police said this wasn't a stranger incident.
