Two people injured in Luzerne County shooting

There's currently no word on either of the victims' conditions.

EDWARDSVILLE, Pa. — Edwardsville Police responded to a shooting around 6 p.m. at the Hilltop Apartments in the borough to find a male with gunshot wounds and shell casings scattered in the parking lot.

"When we arrived, there was a gunshot victim that was transported via ambulance to Geisinger Wyoming Valley. During the investigation, preliminary investigation, we found out that there was a second gunshot victim," said Mike Lehman, Edwardsville Borough Police.

Investigators say the second victim left the scene. 

Newswatch 16 found police outside a home on South Grant Street in Wilkes-Barre, where authorities say the victim's parents lived. 

Police later removed a silver sedan from the scene. 

"We were able to locate that vehicle, and to the best of our knowledge, that individual was taken to Geisinger also for a gunshot by his parents," said Lehman.

Edwardsville Police and a State Police Forensics Unit searched the area where they say the shooting took place, hoping video surveillance can help uncover what happened.

"There are cameras in the area, there are videos up here. We're asking residents if they have any Ring doorbell footage if they can get it to us. If anybody seen anything, give us a call," said Lehman.
