Beloit Police report three shootings this week
Beloit Police are investigating the city's third shooting this week.
Captain Bill Tyler says paramedics treated a 32-year-old gunshot victim at a home on Euclid Avenue on Wednesday and transported him to an area hospital for treatment. The victim is in the intensive care unit where investigators are waiting to speak with him once his condition improves. Tyler says preliminary investigation indicates there was an earlier altercation between the victim and armed suspects at the home. A short while later, the victim was shot outside. After he was shot, he returned to the house and collapsed, and people at the residence called 911.
A search warrant was subsequently served at the residence by members of the drug and gang unit. Details on the warrant are not currently available.
At about 6pm Thursday, police responded to a shots-fired call on Moore Street and found that a house had been shot at several times and at least one person had been hit. Paramedics treated the 24 year old victim and transported him to an area hospital. Several people, including a young child, were in the home at the time of the shooting. Tyler says the incident was gang-related.
These incidents follow a fatal shooting Tuesday near Merrill Elementary School.
Police say that suspect is still at large.
