YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Two men standing outside of a house in Youngstown late Friday were hurt after someone in a passing car fired several shots at them. Minutes later, another man was hurt a couple of streets away.

Chief of Detectives Capt. Rod Foley said the two men were outside of the home on Fairgreen Avenue after 11 p.m. when they were hurt.

Several minutes after police got there, there was more gunfire nearby.

Officers responded to Thornton Avenue and found a man who had been shot in the foot and buttocks in a garage there.

All three men are being treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center.

Foley said detectives hope to talk to the men who were hurt on Fairgreen Avenue Monday.

A police report for the shooting on Fairgreen Avenue was not available to the public. Most of the information on the police report for the shooting on Thornton was blacked out, with a heading that said “investigation.”
