Before the ceasefire officially ended on its one-year anniversary weekend, one person was killed and three others were injured in less than two hours across the city.

Just after 5:45 p.m. on Sunday, officers in the Eastern District responded to the 900 block of North Broadway for a shooting. Upon their arrival, police found two people shot, a male with a gunshot to the leg and another victim with wounds to the torso. A short time later, a third victim walked into an area hospital with a gunshot to the foot.
