UPDATE: Police interviewing possible suspects in Dubuque shooting

Posted: Updated:


Late Sunday night, police cars surrounded the 1000 block of Wilson Street in Dubuque.

Police say multiple shots were fired, and one man wounded. "Officers responded and located a large group of people, in the 1000 block of Wilson Street, and they also located the victim down on the ground suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the upper chest," said Lt. Scott Baxter of the Dubuque Police Department. 

The man was identified as 26-year-old Cortez Robinson of Dubuque. "There was some injury to one of his lungs, but yeah, the bullet wound was to his upper left chest area," Baxter said.

Robinson was taken to Mercy Hospital for treatment. He is expected to be okay.

Police say a party may have lead to the shooting. "There was reports of a large social gathering there. We had some complaints of people being loud and possibly enticing one another to fight, so some type of disturbance earlier in the evening lead up to this," added Baxter.

No one has been arrested, but authorities say they have interviewed several people to find those involved.

The shooting remains under investigation.
