Three men, ages 17-20 were standing in the car port of 726 Elkington St. An unknown suspect walked up and fired at least 8 rounds at the victims. The suspect ran Southbound and fled in a grey, full size pick-up. One victim was shot in the back of his upper leg. A second victim suffered a gunshot to his pelvis and the third victim escaped harm. None of the injuries were life-threatening and both victims were treated at a local trauma center. The shooting is being investigated as gang related but at this point it is unknown if this is retaliation for the earlier shooting or an isolated incident.
