The Regional Gang Unit is investigating an incident that led to the shooting of two Reno residents. It happened just before midnight on Saturday. Investigators say the two victims were walking in the 2100 block of Sutro, near the Silver Terrace Apartments. That’s when they spotted two suspected gang members spray painting graffiti. They yelled at the vandals to stop.
The taggers suddenly pulled at least one gun on the victims, shooting one in the foot and the other in the leg. Afterwards, the vandals ran off. The injured victims drove themselves to Renown Regional Medical Center for treatment. Police are not releasing the names or condition of the victims. Anyone who may have information about the incident is encouraged to call secret witness at (775) 322-4900.
