No arrests have been made after a fatal shooting late Saturday night in Cedar Rapids. Police spokesperson Sergeant Cristy Hamblin says it happened in a neighborhood a short distance away from the police station.
Officers arrived to find 30-year-old Andre Herron had been shot in the street. Herron was later pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital. Few details about the case are being released, but officers are interviewing witnesses and neighbors who heard gunshots.
“We’ve talked to several people and we’re looking at a lot of different pieces of evidence, but at this time we haven’t made an arrest,” Hamblin said. “We’re working very hard to find the people who are responsible for this.” Hamblin said it doesn’t appear the shooting was “random,” though the motive remains unclear.
