2 men at hospital report being shot on I-70 in Ohio

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two men who came to a hospital with gunshot wounds reported being fired upon as they were driving on an interstate in Ohio, authorities said.

Columbus police said the 19- and 23-year-old men went to the hospital just before 2 p.m. Friday with gunshot wounds to their arms and torso.

They said they had been driving west on Interstate 70 heading toward I-71 when they heard several gunshots and realized they had been struck, police said. The two told police they did not believe they were the intended target and didn’t want to pursue charges, police said.

Police said both were listed as stable and their injuries didn’t appear life-threatening. Anyone with information is asked to call investigators.
