Two shot in Sarasota , Investigation Underway
SARASOTA- : An adult and teenager are recovering from life threatening gunshot wounds after a Sunday Night shooting.
“Just after 8:00 last night,” Judge said. “Saraota Police Officers responded to near the intersection of Carver Street and Orange Avenue for a report of a shooting.”
Officers found a teenager and an adult suffering from gunshot wounds, specific ages of the victims are still unknown.
“We’re still trying to piece together exactly what happened,” Judge said. “If they were shooting at each other, or someone was shooting at them, that’s part of our investigation right now, the two victims did have life-threatening injuries when they were transported to Sarasota Memorial Sunday night.”
Sarasota Police say there is currently no threat to the public.
“So far in the investigation we have no reason to believe this is a random shooting,” Judge said. ‘We do believe that it’s an isolated incident. But again, we take any sort of shooting or any sort of violence in our community very seriously, so we’re continuing with our investigation to see if the victims were the ones responsible or if there was anyone else responsible.”
Police are asking anyone with information to contact the Sarasota Police Department.
“Right now our investigation is continuing,” Judge said. “We’re looking to speak to anybody that might have been in the area, anyone that might have home video surveillance systems like a Ring doorbell on their home, if they captured anything or heard anything last night,” They’re encouraged to give Sarasota Police a call.”
