It happened just after 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. Police first responded to a report of a person with a gunshot wound. When they got to the scene, they found a second victim. Both were taken to Platte Valley Medical Center and are expected to make a full recovery.

Witnesses told police they saw a man with a gun running into a nearby neighborhood. Officers then issued a CodeRED alert and asked people to stay inside and shelter in place. During this search, they learned the person who neighbors reported seeing was actually the first gunshot victim. The shelter in place order was then immediately lifted.
