UPDATED: While police were on the scene investigating the homicide Friday, a volley of about 10 gunshots echoed off the bluff about noon, sending officers scrambling from the scene to a fresh crime seven blocks away.
Witnesses near the intersection of Green Street and Northeast Glendale Avenue told police two males exchanged gunfire across the street from each other about noon. Neither male was hit, nor was any property in the area. Both men fled the scene on bicycles.
By later Friday, no arrests had been made in that shots fired incident or the deadly gunplay earlier on Northeast Monroe Street.
Carnell Ashford is the 15th homicide victim in the city so far this year and the fifth violent death the city has recorded in the last 22 days. Source
