As a survivor of Sunday shootings that claimed three lives remained in critical condition, a police spokesman said Tuesday investigators suspect the deadly incidents are linked to gang activity.

But Sgt. Dennis McWilliams, police spokesman, said police are working to determine what, if any, links the victims had to gangs. To clarify, he said police would consider a shooting gang-related if a shooter was a gang member and a shooting victim was not a gang member.

Police have said Ashley Smith, 22, Olivia Maddox, 20, and Kiara Baggett, 21, were shot shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday while on the porch of Maddox’s listed address in the 1200 block of North 23rd Street. Smith and Maddox later died. Baggett, who is about four months pregnant, was in critical condition.

About 6:20 p.m. Sunday, police say Anthony Elliott, 18, was fatally shot elsewhere. Police suspect his shooting is related to that of the three women.

“We are putting all of our resources into investigating these horrific crimes,” McWilliams said. “Detectives are working day and night.”
