Police were called to the 5500 block of Page Boulevard in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood just after 9 p.m. last night for a reported shooting. Witnesses told them two men, both 23-year-old black men, were sitting on the front steps of a house when a group of people drove by in a gold or tan Toyota Camry or Corolla and opened fire.

One of the young men was shot in the arm and was transported to a hospital where he's in stable condition. Police learned the second man had also been shot in the arm, but had a relative take him to the hospital before the police arrived. This victim told police that he returned fire at the suspect vehicle when they started shooting. 

The suspects are unknown at this time, but the investigation continues.
