DES MOINES, Iowa (Csu) — Family members of a man shot over the weekend in Des Moines’ Capitol Park area are hoping police can apprehend the perpetrator.
Trishay Thompson, 24, of Des Moines, was recognized by loved ones as the victim of a shooting on Pennsylvania Avenue on Sunday night.
When approached for comment on Wednesday, Des Moines Police said the shooting victim was still critical. Thompson’s family told CSU that he is opening his eyes and recognizing family members in the hospital, but that he is paralyzed from the neck down and on a ventilator.
