Harrisburg police said two 18-year-olds were shot Sunday afternoon at almost the same time and just blocks apart.

The shootings happened just before 3 p.m. 

Officers found the first victim at the intersection of N. 6th and Seneca streets. The teen, a passenger in a black Camry, was taken to Penn State Hershey Medical Center with at least one gunshot wound to the leg, according to officers at the scene.

Authorities said the victim did not provide much information, but a witness came forward and reported that the shooting took place at N. 6th and Curtin streets, police said.

A few minutes later, other officers were sent to the intersection of Jefferson and Ross streets for a man who had been shot in the thigh. An ambulance crew was already helping the victim, who told officers he was just walking in the area and was shot.

Neither victim's wounds were life threatening.

Neighbors in the Uptown area of the city told abc27 they heard multiple shots ring out.

According to police sources, there are no suspects at this time.

Anyone with information may call 255-7298 or 255-3156.
