Neighbors say they heard about five shots and reported seeing a 1993 white four-door Dodge Dynasty speeding away from the scene.

Brooker died on the way to the hospital.

About five minutes later, police received a call of another shooting, this time on Hancock Street. Officers arrived to find 24-year-old Malcolm Reeves with a gunshot wound to his side. He was taken to Memorial Health where he is now in stable condition.

Police now believe the shootings are related. They are following up several leads and still looking for the driver of the white car.
