Cedar Rapids Police are investigating an early morning shooting on the city's southeast side, which was followed by an apparent suicide.
According to a release from the Cedar Rapids Police Department, officers were called to 639 40th Street SE at approximately 4:40 this morning for the report of a shooting. When the CRPD arrived, there was a 35-year-old man inside the home that had "several gunshot wounds." Though his injuries didn't appear to be life-threatening, he was taken to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
Cedar Rapids Police also found a 30-year-old man deceased man in the street, outside the home. Police believe he shot the man inside the home, then died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
An investigation by the Cedar Rapids Police Department has led authorities to believe the shooting was a domestic situation.
