Waco police responded to a shooting late Friday night at the same apartment complex to which officers responded following a report of a shooting Monday.

Waco police dispatchers, just minutes before 11:30 p.m. Friday, sent officers to 1106 North 6th St., the Villages Apartments, after a caller reported a shooting at one of the units.

A Waco police field supervisor said officers located one male victim who “was conscious and breathing” at the scene, but his identity and current condition are not known.

Reports from the scene indicate investigators recovered spent shell casings at the scene, but it wasn’t disclosed whether those casings were recovered inside an apartment unit or outside the building, nor was the number of casings mentioned.

Police were sent only last Monday to the same location after another shooting was reported.

Emergency calls came in simultaneously just before 3:30 p.m. Monday from the Villages apartments at 1100 North 6th St., where the shooting occurred, and North 17th Street and West Waco Drive where the victim was in a private vehicle after being driven from the shooting scene.

The shooting victim was transferred to an ambulance and then was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center.

Crime scene investigators were at the apartment complex late into the afternoon Monday where they recovered shell casings, police said.

Officers led a handcuffed teenager and later a handcuffed woman to a Waco Police Department van but said the arrests weren’t related to the shooting, rather the two were arrested for criminal trespass because they had been banned from the property earlier, police said.
