The double shooting occurred near 247 Grand Street, prompting a swift response from the police.

Just before 1 a.m., officers arrived at the scene after receiving reports of shots fired.

They immediately called for EMS assistance when they found two victims with gunshot wounds.

Police say one victim was shot in the armpit, while the other sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. Both victims were quickly rushed to the regional medical center, where they are in serious but stable condition.

As authorities arrived, the suspect responsible for the shooting had already fled the scene and is currently at large.
