Within 10 minutes, police received notice that two gunshot victims had shown up at Troy Regional Medical Center.

“Officers responded to the emergency room to find two 21-year-old males that had been shot,” Barr said. “One subject had been struck multiple times. He was transported to a Dothan hospital by ground ambulance for further treatment. His injuries were serious, but were not believed to be life-threatening.”

Then, while police were investigating the shooting, they got a call of another shooting at North Knox Street and John Lewis Drive. The call was shortly after 3 a.m.

Again, they found shell casings and signs that someone was injured, but did not find a victim.

A 22-year-old male arrived at the emergency room at approximately 3:17 a.m. with a non-life-threatening injury below his waist.

Both crime scenes were processed and evidence was collected. Investigators are actively working these cases and following up on leads. Anyone with information about either of these crimes is asked to contact the Troy Police Department at 334-566-0500 or call the secret witness line at 334-566-5555.
