The first female victim, 18-year-old, sustained injuries to the feet and upper torso; the second female victim, 45-year-old, sustained a gunshot wound to the foot, police said.

All six victims have been released from hospital and are recovering.

Lowery has been charged with six counts of attempted murder and weapons offenses. The 21-year-old is being held in police cellblock pending a court appearance on Wednesday. Bail has been set at $3 million cash, police said.

    Good you dumb son of a bitch they should give your ass life with no chance of getting out

  • Tony Clifton

    He will get nothing close to life, he will rat out his fellow thugs and cut a deal. 10 to 12 years at best.

  • Ike G. Erwin Myers

    NO PLEA BARGAIN, NO DEAL FOR THIS retarded street thug. HE is a liar and a coward. I hope he rots in jail for a few decades or bring back the death penalty. You know from the look on his face, that the murder that he committed is a badge of honor to him, and that he will kill, and kill again, if allowed to. Time to put him down, like you do most rapid animals.
