JOHNSTOWN, Pa. -- Johnstown police said they are continuing their investigation after a man was shot over the weekend and are looking into the possibility that it is linked to a shooting incident that occurred a week prior in another part of the city.
Johnstown Police Chief Craig Foust said a man showed up at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center Sunday with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Police said the man was shot in the 500 block of Fronheiser Street in the Hornerstown section of the city at about 3 p.m.
Police said the man, whose named has not yet been released, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police said despite the man not cooperating with investigators, they have been able to pinpoint at least three people of interest in relation to the shooting.
Police said at least two vehicles were involved in the shooting but a motive for the shooting was unknown. Police said there was no danger to the public.
Foust said investigators are looking into the possibility that the shooting may be linked to another incident that happened on Jan. 4 near the Solomon Homes, in the Walnut Grove section of the city.
Police were called to that area for a report of shots fired. At that time, neighbors help identify Dashawn Green as one of two people that may have fired those shots.
Green jumped into a nearby causeway and was arrested after being pulled from the stream by emergency personnel.
Green faces several drug charges related to that incident, as police found cocaine, heroin and marijuana on him at the time of his arrest.
A second person was not apprehended in relation to that incident.
Police did not address the specifics about why the two incidents may be related, only saying that their investigations were ongoing.
