Officials say police arrived and found a male who had been shot in the arm. Police say a second male victim, who fled from the area after being shot in the back side, was located at 20th and Chestnut Streets.

Klain said both victims were taken to U of L Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

A second shooting happened early Sunday morning in the area of 12th Street and Cedar Court, Klain said.

Authorities have not issued suspect information in either shooting.

Police are continuing to investigate both shootings.
