At approximately 1:30 p.m., Wednesday, Duluth Police Officers responded to the 2500 block of W 2nd St for a report of a shooting. Upon arrival, two victims were located. One victim, a 19-year-old male, was transported to a local hospital by an ambulance where he was pronounced dead. The second victim, an 18-year- old male, sustained a gunshot wound to his lower extremities and was transported to a local hospital by a private vehicle. He is expected to survive his injuries.
At approximately 2 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 3900 block of W 4th St for a second shooting incident. No victims were located at the scene. DPD has reason to believe this is a retaliation shooting stemming from the first shooting.
