    Investigators were called to Truax Way around 3:40 a.m., where they found a man shot in the alley.  He died at the scene. He has been identified as 27-year-old Christian St. John Jenkins.

    Minutes later police responded to a shooting less than a mile away on Lowrie Street.  That's where they found another man who had been shot at a home.  He was taken to the hospital. Police haven't released his condition. 


    Neighbors said they heard the shots and called 911. 

    "I was sleeping we heard one gunshot.  I woke up out my sleep, I looked over and I heard two more gunshots and thought, 'I hope it's not my car,'" the unidentified neighbor said.  "We waited to make sure no one else was out there -- looked out the window and there was a guy just laying there.”

    Police haven't made any arrests.
