Des Moines Police are investigating a shooting on Monday, July 31, 2023 at the Des Moines Marina north parking lot.

Police said that on July 31, officers responded to multiple 911 reports of a shooting at that location.

Witnesses reported that a large group had gathered in the parking lot before an unknown subject pulled out a firearm and began shooting.

Officers arrived on scene and found several spent ammo casings and one victim.

It appears the intended victim left the scene and has not contacted police.

No further details have been released.
