When police arrived on the scene they say that they found "several spent shell casings in the roadway."  Witnesses said that several people had run away and through nearby yards in the neighborhood after the shots were allegedly fired.

As investigators were processing evidence in the South Street incident, officers were also called to St. Elizabeth's Hospital to investigate a case of a gunshot victim who had walked into the hospital.

The victim, who has not been publicly identified at this time, appeared to have been shot near his knee.

Police do not know if the shots fired incident and the gunshot victim case are related and say they are still investigating both alleged crimes.
