When a bullet-riddled car containing two gunshot victims -- one in life-threatening condition -- pulled up to the UCMC emergency room Tuesday night, authorities' first priority was getting them into treatment.

Their second was figuring out where, exactly, the shooting occurred. 

 

 

Police Lt. Steve Saunders said Tuesday that the two victims, both men, were likely shot on Iliff Avenue in West Price Hill. Authorities responded to a shots fired call in the 1800 block of Iliff Ave. shortly before the victims and their driver arrived at the hospital.

By 9 p.m. Tuesday, the car in which the men had arrived was ringed with police tape, and a man appeared to have been taken into police custody nearby.

This is a developing story.
