AZUSA - Authorities continue to investigate three shootings that left one dead and another badly injured.
There were 11 separate calls for service regarding reports of gunfire Saturday through Sunday. Officers, however, are only investigating three confirmed shootings; that includes the Friday shooting that left 22-year-old Alexis Garcia dead, according to Azusa Police Lt. Robert Chivas.
It is unclear if the additional calls involved any gunfire, considering police could not corroborate the callers' claims, Chivas said.
Two shootings occurred November 2. One left a woman with multiple gunshot wounds near West First Street and North Orange Avenue. Additional gunfire erupted near the scene of Friday's deadly shooting, Chivas said.
No victims nor any witnesses have come forward in the shooting where people gathered to mourn Garcia’s slaying near north Alameda Avenue and East Payson Street.
Police did recover evidence that a shooting occurred at the memorial, Chivas said.
It is unclear if Garcia’s killing and the wounding of the woman November 2 are related, Chivas said.
Chivas asks residents to err on the side of caution and call police if they hear possible gunfire.
“If you see something, say something. It’s always better to be safe than sorry,” Chivas said.
