One shooting, one assault
Trouble on East Sixth
An argument between members of rival gangs led to a shooting early Sunday morning near the intersection of East Sixth and Sabine Streets, police say. Reportedly after the argument turned into an altercation, a 16-year-old male pulled out a gun and began shooting. Four bystanders were hit – three in the leg, one in the chest – none of the injuries were life-threatening. Police arrested the teen on Monday and have charged him with four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Meanwhile, police have also arrested and charged 29-year-old Steven Keller with assaulting 41-year-old Merri Gale Hieger outside the Liberty Bar on East Sixth Street on May 6. A widely circulated video of Keller walking up behind Hieger and coldcocking her before grabbing her purse led to the arrest.
