Police responded to reports that multiple people had been shot on the 100 block of East Main Street in Richmond. The exact time of the incident was not immediately made available.

A 56-year-old was taken to Reid Health with a gunshot wound to the abdominal area.

A 53-year-old was also transported to Reid Health with a head injury. Police believe this injury occurred after being hit in the head with an object and was not a gunshot wound.

Both people were later transported to Miami Valley Hospital for treatment.
