EAST SPENCER ó Police are investigating two shootings that took place Monday in East Spencer.
Police Chief Floyd Baldo said that, late Monday, two victims arrived at Rowan Regional Medical Center at different times.
The victimsí names are being withheld for their protection, Baldo said.
But neither is cooperating with the police in their investigation, he said.
One victimís wounds were severe enough to require transportation to another hospital.
No one called 911 or the police to report the shootings, Baldo said.
ě(The victims) went to the E.R. and they called us,î he said.
He said East Spencer police were investigating one incident alleged to have happened in the 400 block of Miller Street, and another that reportedly took place in the 400 block of Boundary Street.
Baldo said that it wasnít yet clear whether the two shootings were connected.
He said itís also unclear whether either incident is related to other recent incidents.
Another man, 29-year-old Dadrian Donald, was shot by an unnamed assailant on Saturday night.
Donald reported to police that he was walking along Heiligtown Road when he was shot by an unnamed person wielding a shotgun.
Police have been searching for a person of interest in that incident who may also be connected with the stabbing of Deshawn Outlaw, 22, at a Grant Street apartment a week ago.
Baldo said investigations are continuing into just where and how Mondayís shootings occurred.
ěItís hard to say at this point,î he said. ěWeíre not getting any cooperation from the victims. They wonít tell who the suspects are, or if in fact there is more than one.î
Baldo said that the ěstreet codeî is hindering his officersí investigation.
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 866-639-5245.
