here was a double shooting south of Dearborn in Platte County overnight, with two victims being treated at area hospitals.
The Platte County Sheriff’s Office confirms it is investigating the shooting, but is not giving many other details at this time.
Sgt. Mark Overton with the sheriff’s department did confirm the injured are a 21-year-old and a 23-year-old, who are being treated at area hospitals. A suspect is in custody and currently being interviewed by investigators, Overton said.
Sources tell The Landmark the shooting apparently occurred near what is known as the Triple R Airport near Dearborn, a small privately-owned airstrip. It is believed none of the victims or suspect are involved with the airport’s operation.
Authorities were on the scene Saturday morning and appeared to be searching for a weapon or other potential evidence, sources said.
The Landmark will have more details as information becomes available.
