The incident on Iron Peak Court follows a double shooting earlier Monday morning at the Twin Creek Apartments on James Donlon Boulevard. There, a 36-year-old man died on the scene after being shot, and another victim was transported to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

Officers responded to that location around 1:30 a.m. after a report of gunfire. An investigation of the incident revealed that several subjects were inside an apartment when an altercation occurred. Shortly afterward, a male suspect fired several gunshots and fled on foot. The suspect believed to be responsible for the shooting has not yet been detained.
