    It's really hard to find any details about this. Did they catch the shooter? What condition are the victims in?

    Here is the press release from APD. Fight occurred they broke it up and while they were dispersing a car believed to have occupants from the fight pulled up and opened fire on the crowd. Officers returned fire and the car sped off. Three injured due to gunfire.

    Good to see that all 3 victims are expected to survive. Time to find the hood rats in the car and throw them in a federal pound them in the ass prison.

    Surprised there wasn't already a thread on this. Random shooting into a crowd on Welch seems like a bigger deal

    There is, I didn't see it until after I posted it since the OP put it in Off Topic. http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/threads/shooting-on-welch.226607/

    Heartbreaking. This isn't the small town Ames I know and love..

    Considering we don't have hardly any information about it at this point I don't think it's fair to call it a random shooting just yet.

    That corner always seemed to have fighting when I was in school a decade ago. Seems it started when that club was opened. Is that club still open?

    I think you are thinking of Club Element. It has changed hands a couple times since. Now it is called AJ's Ultra Lounge. My sister who's in school now says any respectable person avoids it like the plague.

    I was walking past Kum and Go back tovmy car at about 1:25... Police cars were already by AJ's club, so the first fight must've already happened. Good thing I left when I did.

    Wow. Didn't know that the cops returned fire into the car.

    Hope there wasn't any friendly fire injuries.

    Should be pretty easy to spot the vehicle with bullet holes.

    Also, I have to think someone has to have some video of the car's license plate. There seems to be somebody making a video of just about anything that happens these days.

    Pretty ballsy to knowingly shoot into an area where cops are still working to break up a scene that you yourself caused.......they'll find these guys in short order. Probably more Chicago transplants.

    Rumor is they may have been from Fort Dodge and possibly Iowa Central. Just a rumor at this point.

    A better term would be "indiscriminate" since I am betting it's related to the earlier fight and not entirely "random". Truely random shooting are pretty rare. This ones unique in a way since the cops were there, most of the time (if it is as it seems) this is the stuff that happens BEFORE the cops. Shooting into a crowd with the cops present is even crazier than the usual, and all to common, "fight escalates to gunplay" scenario.
