What happened Sunday night on the corner of O'Connor and Euclid? The whole intersection was barricaded with multiple police cars and the FD down the street yet nothing in the MP blotter or here?

Willows Resident - the EPA PD ShotSpotter reported gunshots on Euclid & also on Woodland. Then, on the 1400 block of Woodland, they found that a young man had been shot. The public doesn't know if there's a connection.

To get fast alerts, if you have a Facebook account, you can Like the EPA PD page and then you'll get the updates, which can be very useful. I don't think that MP PD has a Facebook page.
