Police in Richmond said the four victims in a shooting Thursday night are not cooperating with investigators, who have not made any arrests.

Investigators said at least 15 rounds were fired at four men near Shiloh Baptist Church, in the 1500 block of North H Street, just after 9 p.m. Three of the victims were found in that area and a fourth drove himself to Reid Hospital, police said.

Officers are searching for three males witnesses said left the scene in a dark colored car.

Maurice Boatman, 26, and Terry Johnson, 23, of Anderson, Ind., were treated and released, according to Richmond Capt. James Branum.

A hospital spokesman said neither Tristen Odell "TO" Bennett, 34, of Dayton, nor Frank Deloney, 33, of Richmond were listed in the hospital's patient directory. However, police said Bennett and Deloney underwent surgery for non-life threatening injuries and were patients as of Friday afternoon.

Bennett's family said he was in stable condition. Deloney's relatives said he was admitted to intensive care.

Bennett's older brother, Charles Boyce, told News Center 7's John Bedell he couldn't put into words the violence his brother was caught up in when gunfire erupted on the city's north side.

"With the things going on today there's no telling" why someone would want to shoot Bennett, Boyce said.
