Cedar Rapids police say they’ve identified three “persons of interest,” in connection with Saturday morning’s fatal shooting in the parking lot of the Iowa Smoke Shop on Kirkwood Court Southwest .
18-year olds Matrell Johnson and Royal Abram both died from their wounds, while two 19-year olds, a man and a woman, who were also in the car into which the shots were fired, remain hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
The people police are looking for are 25-year old Andre Richardson, 24-year old Alexandra Smith, and 21-year old DeShawn Hull.
Cedar Rapids detectives say their investigation continues and they believe this was a targeted attack. They don’t think, however, that it was related to the shooting that occurred in the 100 block of 29th Street Drive Southeast earlier in the evening last Friday.
