FIRST REPORT (April 11):

Two people were shot early Wednesday near Grand Lake St. Marys.

Auglaize County Sheriff Al Solomon said around 3:22 a.m. a report of a male stating he was shot came into 911. The incident happened somewhere off of Ohio 364.

Two victims were found with gunshot wounds, Solomon said. They remain hospitalized and their names have not been released.

“This appears to be an isolated incident and not a threat to other citizens although people should be observant and report anything out of the ordinary,” Solomon said in a release.
