LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - La Crosse Police say a lack of cooperation from victims and witnesses is hampering the investigation of two shootings that happened this weekend, one of which left a person injured.
The department released a statement on both shootings Sunday afternoon.
The first incident happened Friday night around 5:50 p.m. in the 600 block of Rose Street. Officers found that several rounds were fired into a residence there.
The second was Sunday morning shortly before 4 a.m. Officers were called to a residence in the 1000 block of South 4th Street for a shots fired call. Police said there was a party at the residence at the time. One person was hit by one of the shots and was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
In both instances, police said that while both investigations are ongoing, they are also being hindered due to the lack of cooperation of those who were present.
Police also stated they don't know if both shootings are related.
