Two men suffered life-threatening injuries in separate double shootings late Thursday and early Friday in Dayton.
Dayton police were dispatched around 11:10 p.m. Thursday to a shooting in the 300 block of Wyoming Avenue.
A 23-year-old man was found shot and a second gunshot victim, an 18-year-old woman, fled but flagged down Dayton Fire Department medics who took her to Miami Valley Hospital, said Dayton police Lt. Steven Bauer.
“Due to the rapidly evolving situation of having two victims and the close proximity of the hospital, officers quickly loaded the first victim into a cruiser and rapidly transported him to MVH for life-saving medical attention,” Bauer said.
The man is in critical condition and the woman’s injuries are not life-threatening, he said.
The second double shooting was reported around 2:35 a.m. in the 2500 block of North Gettysburg Avenue.
Officers found a 28-year-old man who had been shot and began life-saving medical care while waiting for medics to take him to Miami Valley Hospital, Bauer said. He is in critical condition.
A second gunshot victim, a 25-year-old man, fled the scene but was found nearby. Medics also took him to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment of injuries that are not life-threatening.
