KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety is investigating two separate shootings that occurred overnight on Thursday and on into early Friday.
Officers responded to the one thousand block of Hays Park at about 9:15 PM after getting reports of shots fired. They found a 52 year old Kalamazoo man with a gunshot wound to the leg, and learned he'd been hit by a bullet while sitting on his porch. It appears as though he was not the shot's intended victim, and the man was treated and released from Bronson Hospital.
Then, shortly after midnight, police got another report of someone being shot, this time in the area of North Rose and West Paterson. The victim was a 21 year old Kalamazoo man who'd been shot in the chest. He had just been walking in the area when he was hit, and told police he didn't know who fired the shot. He was also treated and released from Bronson Hospital.
Police ask for the public's help in locating whoever's responsible for the shootings.
