Woman wounded in one of two Thursday morning shootings
A woman was shot near Northeast 119th and Halsey Street early Thursday morning.
The name of the victim was not immediately released. No suspect information was immediately released, either.
Police say that at 4:15 a.m. on Aug. 1., East Precinct officers were dispatched to a report of a person shot in the area of Northeast 119th Avenue and Halsey Street. When officers arrived, they located an adult female who appeared to have a gunshot wound to the leg.
Officers requested an ambulance and applied two tourniquets to the victim's leg. She was transported by ambulance to an area hospital with what are considered to be non-life threatening injuries.
Officers checked the area for evidence and witnesses.
A few minutes earlier, different officers also responded to a report of gunfire near the 800 block of Southeast 73rd Avenue just minutes before. Police are looking into whether these two cases could possibly be connected.
Streets in both areas were closed for part of the morning.
