Shooting Reported in Neston Heights
Easton police say two men shot, hospitalized Sunday afternoon.
Two men were shot Sunday afternoon in Easton's Neston Heights neighborhood, police said.
According to WFMZ, the men were shot at the intersection of Ann and East Bird streets. After the shooting, they knocked on a nearby door and got a woman to drive them to Easton Hospital. From there they were flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital, where they were listed in serious condition.
According to Lt. Matthew Gerould, the shooting appears to have stemmed from a fight.
Neston Heights is the city's newest housing development. City officials have said they're determined not to let the development go the way of its predecessor, Delaware Terrace. Residents must also undergo a criminal background check, and face eviction if police file more than three written reports about calls to their homes.
It was unclear whether the shooting was related to an earlier report on the Breaking News Network of a multiple shooting.
