Two People Shot Overnight in Walnut Park West


Two black males were shot at 7:15 p.m. last night in the 6100 block of Laura Avenue. The first victim, 21, was sitting on a front porch when he saw a white Monte Carlo driving west on Laura, then heard gunshots and felt the bullets hit his chest and foot. Victim two, 25, was walking on Laura when he heard the shots and was hit in the chest and hip.

Both of the wounded men were transported to an area hospital and are in stable condition. The police continue to investigate.
