Two people were wounded in two shootings early Sunday morning.
The first shooting occurred just after midnight in East Chattanooga. Michael Boone, a 33-year-old black male, told police he was walking in the 1300 block of Bradt Street when he was shot at about 12:11 a.m. Sunday.
The bullet struck his right buttock and the wound was not life-threatening, police said in a news release. Police talked to Boone in a local hospital after responding to a report of someone being shot. Boone said he did not see any vehicles or people, and told officers he had no more information and did not want to say any more, according to the release.
The second shooting included a robbery and happened around East Lake Courts. The shooting was in the 2700 block of Fourth Avenue at 6:15 a.m. Sunday. Chattanooga police found Reginald McGruder with a gunshot wound to the right ankle.
McGruder was taken to a local hospital. He told investigators that a man shot him and took his wallet and $200. McGruder described the suspect as a black male in his mid-20s, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 140 pounds, with shoulder-length dreadlocks and carrying a black revolver.
Both shootings are still under investigation. Chattanooga police ask anyone with information regarding these incidents to call 423-698-2525.
