Police holding Sioux City man in connection with Morningside shooting


SIOUX CITY -- Police are holding a 19-year-old Sioux City man in connection with a shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon at a Morningside apartment complex.

Lawrence G. Canady III


According to a statement from the Sioux City Police Department, detectives investigating the matter have charged Lawrence G. Canady III with driving without a valid license, operating without owner's consent and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. No charges have been filed against Canady for the incident at 2201 Gibson St.

Officers initially responded to a report of shots fired at the Riverview Apartments at approximately 4:18 p.m. Wednesday. At that time, officers discovered several shell casings fired from a small-caliber handgun in the parking lot of the 2201 Gibson St. apartment building's parking lot.  

In addition, police found a 21-year-old man who had been wounded nearby running from the area of Bob Roe's Point After, 2320 Transit Ave. The man, whose name has not been released, was taken to MercyOne Siouxland Medical Center for what were believed to be non life-threatening injuries.

At approximately 9:05 p.m. Wednesday, police returned to investigate another report of shots fired at the same apartment complex. Upon arrival, investigators found several shell casings and one live round in front of Building 8 of the Riverview Apartments.
