Staff report


Two males were shot Friday afternoon on Hillman Street near West Ravenwood Avenue.

Police were called about 3:55 p.m. and found one person lying on Hillman Street and another behind an apartment complex in the 3500 block of Hillman.

Both victims were taken to St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital, and were in critical condition Friday night.

A police spokesman said both men were shot and the gunman managed to escape.

Police did detain a person for questioning.

One sidewalk at the corner of Hillman and West Ravenwood was covered with at least a half dozen shell casings.

Police also blocked off portions of the street and the parking lot on the side of the apartment complex, making for a rather large crime scene.

A pair of women who declined to give their names said they heard several shots from a couple of blocks away.

Another woman who was in a car who declined to give her name also said she heard multiple gunshots.
