ROCHESTER, Minn. - A police K-9 is being credited with helping locate an alleged shooter after two people were injured early Thursday morning.
Police were called at 4:19 a.m. after two males, ages 20 and 25, were shot in the leg in the parking lot of Westminster Townhomes in the 3900 block of 18th Ave. NW.
The two shooting victims are expected to be OK.
With assistance from the Olmsted County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit, they were able to locate 18-year-old Jaeden Adcox, of Rochester, who was found hiding under a deck of a residence in the 1200 block of 30th St. NW.
Adcox was arrested an hour after the shooting.
The gun in the alleged shooting was also located thanks to the help of the K-9, authorities said. Police said they were unsure if the victims and Adcox knew each other and added it could have been a possible robbery.
The area of the shooting is near John Adams Middle Schools, and the campus was searched and cleared.
One neighbor who chooses to remain anonymous tells KIMT that the incident started at her place. She says her roommate allowed them inside but soon asked them to leave because they were getting too rowdy. When they got outside the problems escalated.
"I was freaking out because of my kids," She said. I was throwing up because of my kids. I was having a panic attack."
