DES MOINES, Iowa — Five people have been charged with Attempted Murder for their alleged roles in a shooting at a Des Moines home late Monday night that left a 2-year-old in critical condition with a gunshot wound.

The shooting happened at a home in the 1300 block of Jefferson Street around 10:48 p.m. on Monday. Police say dozens of shots were fired into the home. A 17-year-old girl and a 2-year-old child were the only ones in the home. Police say the home was targeted intentionally, but not the two people inside. The 2-year-old was the only one injured. At last report, the child is in critical condition.

Around two hours later, police were called to a crashed vehicle on I-80 that they believed was involved in the shooting. Five people were taken into custody. Police found two guns in the car. Charges have now been filed against those five individuals:

  • Owo Roby Nyal Bol, 20
    • Attempted Murder (2 counts)
    • Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon (2 counts)
    • Probation Violation
  • Thon Robin Bol, 20
    • Attempted Murder (2 counts)
    • Intimidation with a Dangerous Weapon (2 counts)
  • Caine William Dominguez-Shiesl

  • Odol Lual Othow

None of the five suspects are metro residents. Owo Bol and Thon Bol are both Sioux City residents, Caine Dominguez-Shiesl is from Omaha, Reath Yak is from Storm Lake and Odol Othow is from Worthington, Minnesota – according to Des Moines Police.

Neighbors say that violence like this is unfortunately part of their everyday lives. “There’s shootings all over this neighborhood,” says Derrick Young, “You got your bad kids, drug dealers all over. We get it all but like I said if you can’t adapt to it – you got to move.”
