Police are investigating a shooting involving multiple victims on the 100 block of Glenwood Drive which occurred shortly before 3 p.m. this afternoon. At least two people were injured and witnesses told police there may be a third victim.

UPDATE: Police have arrested Jordan D'Kobe, 19, for criminal homicide in connection to a Monday shooting incident believed to be a botched drug deal turned deadly. 

Police responded to a gas station on 100 block of Glenwood Drive around 2:45 p.m. on a report of a shooting and found Dangelo Marshall, 20, lying on the ground with a gunshot wound to the head, according to court records. 

The store owner allowed police to view his video system and an investigator wrote that it showed a Nissan Sentra and a Chevy Malibu pull up at adjacent pumps. 

He said the driver of the Nissan then got out his car and into the back of the Malibu. After about 15 seconds, gunfire erupted in the car. 

The driver of the Nissan exited the Chevy and fled west on McCallie Avenue. The driver of the  Chevy opened his door and immediately fell to the ground, while his passenger got out, hopped in the driver seat and drove off. 

After responders arrived, Marshall was taken to Erlanger by EMS, but he died from his injuries. Meanwhile, two other shooting victims, D'Kobe and Michael Benning, 18, arrived at Erlanger and Memorial hospitals respectively via personal cars. 

Both sustained minor injuries: Jordan was shot in the right arm and Benning was shot in the left. 

D'Kobe was discharged from the hospital and interviewed by investigators at the Police Service Center. He admitted to going to Kanku's to meet someone to buy marijuana. 

D'Kobe said he paid the driver $100, but then the passenger pulled out a gun, prompting him to pull one out himself and start shooting into the front of the car. 

Two hours after the incident, blood and discarded clothes could still be seen at the foot of a gas pump. 

D'Kobe is a validated gang member, but the victims are not. Police said Tuesday that this shooting is not believed to be gang-motivated.
