One Dead After Sunday Night Shooting in Cedar Rapids
Cedar Rapids Police were called to the corner of Edgewood Road and 29th Avenue SW at about 8 last night. When responding officers arrived, they found two men in the Walmart parking lot just south of the original call, on 31st Ave SW, just off Edgewood. The two men had been shot.
According to the Gazette, city spokeswoman Maria Johnson says that 26-year-old Andrew Meeks of Cedar Rapids has died from his injuries in last night's shooting. A 30-year-old man, who has injuries not believed to be life-threatening, is still hospitalized.
While the shooting is still being investigated, Cedar Rapids Police don't think there's “any ongoing threat to the public.”
