Police officers from Des Moines, Iowa, United States, are at the scene of a shooting where several people were injured. The attack occurred at Starts Right Here, a school intended to help young people living in disadvantaged circumstances.

At approximately 1:30 p.m. on Monday, shots were fired at a youth-oriented organisation in the downtown area of Des Moines, resulting in the injuries of three people.

Paul Parizek, a spokesperson for the police department, stated that three persons, including a teacher, were sent to hospitals; two of them were listed in critical condition, and one was listed in stable condition. Starts Right Here is an educational mentorship programme that aids at-risk adolescents in the Des Moines metropolitan area. The address where the shootings took place is 455 S.W. Fifth St., a building in an office park that is home to Starts Right Here.

Starts Right Here is a group that works with Des Moines Public Schools. It was started by local rapper Will Holmes, whose stage name is Will Keeps.

Two individuals in a vehicle fled the scene of the shooting and were later captured; however, according to Parizek, it was unclear whether or not they were involved to the shooting.

Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican representing Iowa in the United States Senate, posted on Twitter that he was “watching reports of a shooting in Des Moines at Starts Right Here charter school.”
