Detectives are investigating two shootings in which victims were transported for treatment of non-life threatening wounds on Thursday.

Jacob Strickland, 19, was transported to a hospital by private vehicle "after he was shot in what was reported as a robbery attempt on Robin Hood Drive near Marion Circle about 1 p.m.," police say.

The shooter was described as a short, young black male with an average build with no facial hair.

Police are investigating possibilities "the robbery extended from a drug situation and warn the public that risky behavior often precedes such events," police say.

Waljai Williams, 19, was transported from the 2100 block of Texas Street about 11 p.m.

He was walking eastbound on Texas near Ohio Street toward a group of males standing in front of a house "when a male under a tree behind him began firing at him," police say. "He and the other males ran into a house where he discovered wounds."
