When they arrived, they found a 24-year-old black male who had been shot multiple times and was being transported to DCH Regional Medical Center. He is in critical condition.
While on the scene, investigators learned a second victim, another 24-year-old black male, was at DCH with a gunshot wound to the leg. He said he had also been shot at University Manor.
