By Alex Schuman

Police released new information regarding the two Sunday shootings near downtown Des Moines.

Kenyatta Taylor, who was shot at Oakridge Apartments, died Monday morning from his injuries.  The 20-year-old's death makes the shooting Des Moines' second homicide from this weekend.

Police said they do not believe Taylor's murder is connected to the shooting that happened early Sunday morning at an apartment complex near 6th and Forest Avenue. 

"This is not a random act," said Sgt. Jason Halifax, Des Moines P.D.  "I can't give out details about how it took place or why it took place, but... this was focused on the victim in this case."

Detectives are still questioning people for more information, but said they do have suspects.
