YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — Youngstown police are investigating four shootings between Thursday afternoon and early Friday in which two people were wounded.

About 1:45 a.m. Friday, a man was dropped off at St. Elizabeth Health Center with a gunshot wound to the knee. He told police he was walking at East Boston Avenue and Market Street when he was shot.

The man refused to give police any more information, reports said.

About 11:50 p.m. Thursday, police were called to Pasadena Avenue where gunshot sensors picked up 17 shots, reports said. When officers arrived, they found shattered glass in the street and a house damaged by gunfire.

Police checked the house that was damaged and found a back door open and a trail of blood leading inside the house. Officers followed the trail but found no one inside.

While there, officers were informed of a man who was dropped off at St. Elizabeth with a gunshot wound to the elbow. That man told police he was walking in the street with another man when two carloads of masked men pulled up. The men fired several shots after they got out of their cars before the gunmen drove away, reports said.

About 7:50 p.m. Thursday, two men exchanged gunfire in the parking lot of the Shell station at 3200 Market St. No one was injured, but the windshield of a car was shattered.

At about 3 p.m. Thursday, police were called to South and Williamson avenues for a report of people in two cars exchanging gunfire but officers could find no victims.
