Troy Police are investigating a pair of shootings that took place within 90 minutes of each other on Monday night.

While police haven’t confirmed if the shootings are related, public information officer Lt. Bryan Weed said the time factors could indicate a connection. “We’re investigating them,” he said, adding that details would not be provided.

The first incident took place around 7:45 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 6000 block of North Folmar Street. Weed said officers responded to the report of gunshots in the area. When they arrived, they discovered damage to parked vehicles and that one victim had been transported to Troy Regional Medical Center.

“He was shot once and it was a non-life threatening injury,” Weed said, adding that the victim was a 19-year-old male. “The victim advised several subjects were involved in the shooting but did not identify any of the suspects.”

The second shooting took place around 9 p.m. in the 400 block of Hubbard Street.

“Officers arrived on the scene to find one victim who also received a non-life threatening gunshot wound,” Weed said. The victim, a 32-year-old male, also was transferred to TRMC.

Weed said both victims were outside the residences when the shootings took place and appeared to have been shot by a handgun, but no further details are available due to the ongoing investigation.

While no arrests have been made in connection with the shootings, Weed said the investigation at the Hubbard Street residence did lead to two other arrests. Details have not been released yet.
