Despite the orange traffic barrels that have slowed such incidents, the shootings continue on 72nd

DAVID F. ASHTON - Near the Discount Mini Mart convenience store along S.E. 72nd Avenue, officers arrived to investigate another shooting in the Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood. Peace for Mt. Scott-Arleta neighbors was again abruptly disturbed very early on Saturday, April 30, when once again shots rang out along S.E. 72nd Avenue, in an area just north of Woodstock Boulevard.

East Precinct officers were dispatched at 12:37 a.m. to an area near the Discount Mini Mart convenience store in the short block between Woodstock Boulevard and Knight Street, at the southern edge of Mt. Scott City Park.

Officers soon discovered that this wasn't an unfounded "Shots Fired" call: "They found two shooting victims; officers applied a tourniquet to stem the bleeding of one victim," a PPB official told THE BEE.

Both victims were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. No arrests have been made, and no suspect information is being released at this time.
