Police in Gary are seeking the public's help regarding two separate shooting incidents from over the weekend. Public Information Officer Corp. Gabrielle King says the first incident took place just before 10:30 Friday night when a 17 year old out riding with friends stopped to speak with an unknown subject in the 700 block of 7th Avenue, near Polk Street. After parting, the 17 year old victim reports the unknown subject pulled out a handgun and shot him.
The second shooting incident took place just before midnight on Saturday, where a 21 year old man and a 17 year old man were traveling north on Pierce Street from 38th Avenue, when they were both struck by bullets from an unknown man with a gun who fired at them.
Corp. King says all injuries sustained appear to be non life-threatening, and that anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to contact the Gary Police Department.
