Posted By on Sun, Jul 24, 2016 at 11:01 AM

Detectives are investigating a triple shooting at the Live Oak Apartments on Waters Avenue that claimed the life of one adult male and injured two others on Sunday, July 24.

"At about 2:30 a.m. Metro responded to an apartment complex on the 8500 block of Waters Avenue, where Josh Lewis, 22, and George Thorpe, were found with gunshot wounds," police say.

Lewis and Thorpe were transported to Memorial University Medical Center for care. Thorpe was treating for non-life threatening injuries. Lewis succumbed to his injuries.

Terrell Bonds, the third gunshot victim linked to this case, arrived at MUMC in a privately owned vehicle. Bonds also was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

"The three men were outside the apartment when they were shot. Detectives are following leads in this case. This incident is not believed to be a random act," police say.
