DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Wednesday night's shooting in Dubuque resulted in three men being injured, but no arrests, and very few, if any, suspects.

20-year-olds Frank Washington Jr. Keanu Arnold and 18-year-old Joshua Hale were all admitted to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, police said.

Lt. Scott Baxter with the Dubuque Police says they're having a hard time finding suspects because of uncooperative witnesses.

"We're confident that people, especially those directly involved, have more information they're just not willing to share with us," said Baxter.

He said it's very likely that the three injured men all know each other and the shooter.

But luckily, they don't have to rely solely on the these men and other witnesses for information.

The city has traffic cameras on the corner of 15th and Iowa Street.

"The cameras have proven to be very beneficial, oftentimes providing that crucial evidence that we're unable to get through cooperative individuals," Baxter said.

And they're also getting help from some of the surrounding community.  The Visiting Nurses Association is also on that corner, and have a camera outside their building.

Baxter says getting that cooperation from the community is important for them.

"It's absolutely crucial. Whether it be the video surveillance that they often provide us or witness testimony. Just their support in general is critical in these types of situations," he said.

So far the Dubuque Police have made no arrests in the case, and it remains under investigation.

This is also not the first time this neighborhood has experienced gunfire in the past week.

Police say they responded to shots fired in the same neighborhood Saturday, June 27.  They say they found shell casings, but no property or vehicle damage.  No injuries were reported, either.
