Two city men were wounded this afternoon in the area of Maplewood Avenue and Poplar Street.
Police responded to a report of shots fired in the area shortly after 2 p.m. but located no victims. A short time later, detectives were alerted to two gunshot victims at Saint Vincent’s Medical Center ER. The victims are identified as George Sanchez, 20, who was shot in the torso, and Garth Minto, also 20, who was shot in the thigh. Both are expected to recover. The victims were not cooperative. They provided police with an account of what happened but further investigation cast their version into question.
