Delaware shootingThe discovery of shots fired at a home Monday morning on Delaware is believed by police to be tied to Sunday’s double homicide investigation.

Roads were closed off Monday morning in the area of Delaware and Ashland Ave. for a shooting investigation.

Capt. Jeff Wilson with the St. Joseph Police Department told our reporter on scene that more than 10 shots were believed to be fired at a residence on Delaware about a half a block west of Ashland. No one was hurt during the incident and no one was believed to be home at the time it took place.

Police said it’s believed this incident is tied to a double homicide investigation that took place Sunday on Safari. The shots fired into the home on Delaware were believed to have taken place around the same time as the Safari investigation.

As we previously reported, officers were called out on a report of shots fired at a van in the 1900 block of Safari Dr. around 10:18 a.m. Sunday. When officers arrived they found one person dead inside the van and one person dead outside of the vehicle.

Police said four people were taken into custody Sunday evening in connection with the homicide investigation. Three Hispanic men ages 34, 31, and 26 and one Hispanic woman age 29.
