Three people were reportedly shot

Police told KSLA that one man died, another man was wounded and a woman was found dead in the back seat of a car hours later.

All three were reportedly victims of the drive-by shooting outside Linwood Public Charter School.

The woman has been identified as 19-year-old Paris King.

According to a police spokesperson, the driver of the vehicle said that he sped away after his vehicle was fired at but stopped when he realised Paris had died.

It’s currently unclear whether the man walking over the crates was the one who was shot.

Crate challenge causes serious injury

Whilst the drive-by shooting was not directly associated with the Milk Crate Challenge, the trend has been criticised for resulting in serious injuries.

Some people are stacking towers of up to eight milk crates which almost always topple over as they are made of flimsy plastic.

Orthopedic surgeon Dr Shawn Anthony told The Today Show: The Milk Crate Challenge is very dangerous, and we are seeing many orthopedic injuries as a result of the falls.”

“Injuries can include broken wrists, shoulder dislocations, ACL and meniscus tears, as well as life-threatening conditions like spinal cord injuries,” he continued.
