CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Police have multiple persons of interest after two people were killed in a shooting on Aug. 3 in Cape Girardeau.

Police Sgt. Jason Selzer reports it happened in the 200 block of South Middle Street around 9:30 p.m.

When officers arrived on scene, they found Detavian L. Richardson, 20, and 28-year-old Zatrun R. Twiggs, both of Cape Girardeau, injured, according to Selzer.
