Police: Two men shot in Lorain

LORAIN — The shooting of two men about 10:50 p.m. Thursday in the 2200 block of Lorain Drive by the intersection of West 21st Street is under investigation by police.

The two victims are city men in their 20s, said police Sgt. Michael Hendershot, who wouldn’t give their names. He said one man was shot in the right hip and the other in the left buttock. Hendershot said both men were uncooperative and police are unsure if the shootings are connected.

One man was found at the scene while the other was driven to Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain. The men were then taken by helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland and St. Vincent’s Hospital in Toledo.
