Random Shootings in Northern Colorado Have Authorities Concerned
In just the last 24 hours, three shootings have taken place right here in Northern Colorado targeting moving vehicles. No suspects have been identified.
Authorities here in Northern Colorado are feverishly investigating mulitple shootings here within the last 24-hours.
The first shooting occurred on Wednesday night, April 22 at 10:50 p.m. in Loveland. That shooting happened around Eisenhower and North Cleveland Avenue. The vehicle was being driven by a 21-year-old from Greeley and said he heard a loud "pop" and his rear window then shattered.
The second shooting happened just a few minutes later around 11:15 p.m. when a woman travelling on I-25 was shot in the neck near the Windsor exit. She was able to call 9-1-1 and was taken to the hospital to undergo surgery; there are no reports of her condition.
The latest shooting happened Thursday, April 23 at 12:10 p.m. on WCR 49 between WCR 24 and WCR 26. That case involved a 46-year-old man from Johnstown who had the driver's side window shot out but he was not injured.
Police have no idea if these three shootings are related but are investigating all leads, which I assume are probably few and far between at this point. My gut though tells me these are more likely related than not. Either that or today's shooting may be a case of a "copy cat" shooting for whatever reason that may be.
