Two Chattanooga men who were killed a week apart each were shot multiple times, according to preliminary reports from the Hamilton County Medical Examiner's office.

Jermichael Bowling, 35, was shot 10 times in the torso, arms and legs, according to his medical examiner's report. Police found Bowling dead inside his home on E. 41st Street on Aug. 14.

Investigators do not believe his death was linked to the slaying of 24-year-old Marquise Jackson on Aug. 7. Records show Jackson was shot four times in the leg, neck and torso when he answered the door at his home in Alton Park and someone opened fire.

Police say Jackson's death began a rash of gang-related violence that resulted in a toddler being shot three days later at the same spot where Jackson was killed.

No suspects have been arrested in either man's case. The two men were the 22nd and 23rd people to be killed in Chattanooga so far this year.

Police have arrested suspects in just seven of the year's 23 homicides. Fourteen cases remain unsolved, one death was accidental and another shooting was ruled justified.

About 61 percent of this year's homicides have not been solved.
