Investigators with the Enhanced Community Safety Team (ECST) and other law enforcement partners made two arrests Wednesday night, including one for Attempted Murder related to a shooting from a year ago.

On Thursday, April 2, 2020, at 5:23 p.m., East Precinct Officers responded to the area of Southeast 106th Avenue and Southeast Division Street on a report of multiple shots fired. Officers arrived and located evidence of gunfire. There were no injured parties. East Officers located a crime scene, which included an occupied vehicle that had been struck by gunfire. There were no known injuries from this incident.

Since then, investigators have been pursuing the case. They developed information that the suspect, Abukar S. Sheikh, who was 18 years old at the time and is now 19, was responsible for the shooting.
