Wednesday, May 24,2017 at approximately 11:00 p.m., officers responded to a home in the 600 block of E. Pipkin in reference to a victim of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers learned that 15-20 people were inside of this residence playing dice. Two black males, #1 – 5’08, 180 lbs, wearing a silver and gold skeleton mask, brown Michael Jordan shoes and black gym shorts-#2- 6’02, 170 lbs, wearing a black sweat shirt, red bandanna and red gym shorts, approached a 28 year old female outside the residence. Both of the suspects were holding pistols and suspect #1 put a pistol to her head. She was then forced into the residence and the suspects demanded everyone’s money. Most of the victim’s complied, but one refused. This made suspect #1 more aggressive. The suspects began to retreat out of the residence and suspect #1 began shooting inside the house. A 56 year old female was shot twice. She was transported to Christus St. Elizabeth hospital for treatment. The victims were not cooperative, but officers made four Aggravated Robbery reports and one Aggravated Assault report.
