Police investigate possible relation between 2 Gilbert shootings

Updated:
GILBERT, Ariz. -

A suspect was arrested after a young woman was shot at a house party near Palm and Betsy on Saturday night. Police are investigating if the suspect is connected to a second shooting at a nearby convenience store shortly afterward.

According to Gilbert Police, the first shooting took place around 10:45 Saturday night. The second call came in about 45 minutes later for shots fired at a gas station less than a mile away.

One person was taken into custody and investigators are working to figure out if that person pulled the trigger at both scenes.

John Woodward spent the morning cleaning up after a party his sister held Saturday night.

The broken glass was a pretty good indication something went wrong.

"I was just siting right here, we was patting everybody down making sure there was nobody armed that was coming in and then we just heard gunshots coming from the street over there by the mailboxes," said Woodward.

Residents counted more than 20 gun shots, some hitting too close to homes.

Nearly 100 hundred cars were in the neighborhood and were assumed to be party goers; most of them scattered after police arrived.

There was still plenty of glass left over on the street several hours after the shooting took place.

Neighbors who spoke to the young woman who threw the party say she believes what happened is an isolated incident.

So does her brother, who also thinks the shooting at the shell less than an hour later may be related to what happened here.

"I'm glad that they at least caught somebody, that nobody got away. I heard two people got hurt and that sucks. Hopefully the guy they caught was the one responsible," said Woodward.

Gilbert Police say they took 20-year-old Jhaquel Delvon Will Lewis into custody on Saturday.

He faces charges of aggravated assault. A mug shot hasn't been released yet.

    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.
