Police said multiple shots were fired during the drive-by shooting. Officers said when they arrived the found the two men who had been shot. One man was shot in the leg but was able to run away from the shooters. He ran into an auto body shop and was able to escape more gunfire.

The second man was sitting on the sidewalk when he was shot several times. Police said he was conscious and talking to them.

“I heard five gunshots, so I came up this street, did a u-turn, (saw) the guy lying on the floor,” a witness said. “Another guy had on white shirt with blue jeans, limping away. He got shot in the leg. The other guy lying on the floor was very conscious, so I think he’s going to be okay.”
