Homicide #43/Homicide #44

Two unnecessary murders occurred this weekend after both victims enjoyed a night of partying.
A drive by shooting occurred yesterday early around 3 in the morning, leaving one man dead and three men suffering from gunshot wounds. One of the men that survived is currently in the hospital with life threatening injuries.

The name of the dead man has not been released, and police have not given any description of the attackers. Officers, however, did say they are looking for an older model, dark blue or dark green van with the passenger-side window shot out and a damaged rear taillight.

Around the same time in the downtown district a man who was walking home after a night of clubbing was killed after he got into a fight with two young men. The victim, Christopher Skinner who was 27 years of age was walking home along Adelaide and was knocked to the ground and the attackers jumped into an SUV and ran over him. Video surveillance footage may also help them glean more details on the incident. The name of this victim has not yet been released.
