Des Moines Shooting

Des Moines Shooting
Posted August 16th, 2013 @ 2:12pm

Someone shot up a house in Des Moines last night and almost hit a couple of kids in the process.

It may be a case of gang retaliation as more gunshots rang out in the 1500 block of Dean Avenue striking a pick up truck, and grazing the backside of a young girl.

Witnesses tell Des Moines Police a black Cadillac pulled up in front of the Dean property after dark Thursday night, firing 4 to 5 shots at the truck.

Witnesses also say they believe it's the "Heavy Hittaz" and "C-Block" gangs that have been shooting at each other, citing an August 9th drive-by shooting as an example of retaliation by the gang members.

Officers found three bullet casings in the street on East 16th, just North of Dean.
