Police make two more arrests in Rochester drive-by shooting


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Police have made another break in the case of Wednesday's drive-by shooting in Rochester, as officers have made two more arrests.

According to police, 20-year-old Albert Ryans, Jr. of Rochester is behind bars Friday. Police say he faces drive-by shooting charges.

The continuing investigation led officers and the emergency response unit to the 1600 block of 10th Street Southeast around 7 p.m. Thursday night.

That's where police found Ryans, Jr., along with an SKS assault rifle. Officers suspect he was the shooter who fired at an apartment complex Wednesday afternoon on the 2100 block of Highway 14 East.

Then, at about 2:20 a.m. Friday, the Minnesota State Patrol arrested 29-year-old Lewis Heggs, Jr., also of Rochester, following a routine traffic stop near West Circle Drive and 2nd Street Southwest.

Police say he's a prior felon, and they have reason to believe he's also connected to the shooting.

Police believe Wednesday's shooting might be linked to another, back on November 26 in northwest Rochester. No one was hurt in either incident.

Despite the arrests, police say this is still an active investigation.
