Shooter Opens Fire on Goodfellow Boulevard, Injuring Two


Three people were injured Sunday afternoon when a man opened fire in the 900 block of Goodfellow Boulevard in the West End. A 51-year-old black man told police he was driving north on Goodfellow when he heard shots, simultaneously with his windshield exploding. His car suffered further damage to the rear windows, driver's side door and front tire.

Two people standing on the street were also hit. A 21-year-old black woman told investigators she heard the shots and then was struck in the right shoulder. Her companion, a 34-year-old black man, was shot in the right knee. Both of them are in stable condition.

Police describe the suspected shooter as a 20-to-25-year-old black male wearing blue jeans and white t-shirt. He was the passenger in a brown-colored, two-door compact car.
