DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Police are investigating the shooting of teen siblings outside their home in a central Des Moines neighborhood.
The Des Moines Register reports that the brother and sister were shot Thursday night. The teens, ages 15 and 18, were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and released Friday.
Police say the teens were at home with their mother when a cousin arrived to pick up the 15-year-old. Police say someone in a car following the cousin fired several shots into the air and sped off.
Police say the siblings and their mother then went outside, and the mother began to argue with her neighbors, who complained that the King-Irving neighborhood hadn't had problems with shootings until the family moved in.
Police say that's when the teens were shot.
