A 49-year-old Chattanooga man was shot in the arm Thursday night while a 54-year-old man was stabbed early this morning, police say.
Both men were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, said police spokesman Officer Nathan Hartwig in a news release.
No arrests have been made in either case.
About 10 p.m. Thursday, James Bell was standing outside a home at 5317 Dorsey St. when he was approached by three men who got out of a nearby car, Hartwig said. One of the suspects shot Bell, then fled, he said.
In an unrelated incident, Maurice Usher was severely stabbed in the shoulder and neck at 5300 Central Ave. about 5 a.m. today, Hartwig said. Investigators were told that an unknown female had stabbed him, but Usher would not give many details about what happened, Hartwig said.
Anyone with information on either crime is asked to call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525.
