The Des Moines Police Department is investigating three separate commercial robberies that occurred between the hours of 1:44 a.m. and 4:39 a.m. on May 2 at two Walgreens stores and a Kum & Go. During the commission of all three, the suspect reportedly brandished a knife and demanded cash from employees. Initially Des Moines patrol officers’ reports suggested all three cases may involve the same suspect. It is now believed, however, that there are two different suspects.
In the first reported robbery at 3140 S.E. 14th St., one suspect successfully obtained cash. The suspect received no cash or merchandise from robberies at 104 E. Euclid and 5830 S.E. 14th St.

Blotter — Des Moines
Dispatch received a call of a shooting at 926 Oakridge, Building 301, Apt. 3, just after midnight. Upon arrival, police found 19-year-old Ameisha Heard suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. She was taken to Iowa Methodist Hospital, where she died the next day.
The victim called police around 4 p.m. to 2525 Logan Ave. to report that he went to meet a woman from Backpage.com who he had agreed to pay $175 for two hours “of her time.” When he arrived at the house, she answered the door “wearing a white wife-beater and jeans, and she was flat-chested,” he said. A man inside, wearing a bandana over his face and carrying a gun, ordered the victim to the ground. They took his ID, cell phone, car keys and the $175.
