Two men were seriously injured during unrelated shooting incidents early Friday that each stemmed from an argument at a Harrisburg bar, according to police.

A 24-year-old Allison Hill man was wounded when a shot was fired during an argument among a small group of men at Double D's Bar at 564 South 19th Street just after 1 a.m., city police said.

The victim was unconscious when he arrived at the Harrisburg Hospital emergency room, where he was treated for a gunshot wound to the hip, police said.

About 30 minutes later, a 26-year-old Steelton man suffered a life-threatening would to the neck when he was shot near apartment buildings 13 and 14 in Hall Manor, according to police.

Police said a group of young adults were in a bar on Paxton Street when an argument erupted between two women. The people were asked to leave the bar and one group followed the other to Hall Manor where the women argued or fought.

The situation got out of control and someone fired a handgun, police said.

At last report, police said the victim was in serious condition at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Investigators have announced no arrests in either case.
