“Officers didn’t find any evidence of a shooting that took place there,” Chester said.
Investigators are trying to confirm that the two patients are the same two men who left the apartment building shortly after Tuesday’s incident. The third man was stable when he was taken to a hospital.
According to Chester, the two men who fled were acquaintances and the third man was described as the victim. None of their names were released, and it was not clear if any would face charges.
