Man Shot in City, Easton Police Looking for Two Suspects

A 21-year-old man was shot in the early hours of Thursday morning, and Easton police are looking for two suspects.

Police say they were dispatched to South Seventh and Ferry streets just before 4:30 a.m. for a report of shots fired. Shortly thereafter, they received a report of a gunshot victim a block away, in the first block of South Eighth Street.

The victim, who police have not identified, was shot multiple times and was transported to an undisclosed hospital for treatment. He is expected to survive, police said.

Evidence of the shooting was found in the intersection of South Seventh and Ferry streets, police say.

Authorities are looking for two suspects in the case:

The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about five-foot-seven to five-foot-eight-inches tall, weighing 130 to 140 pounds, and wearing a black hoodie with the hood down.  He was also described as having a New York accent. After the shooting, the suspect reportedly fled the scene east on Ferry Street.

The second suspect is described as a black male, five-foot-nine to five-foot-ten-inches tall. He was  wearing a grey hoodie with the hood up.  He was described as also having a New York accent and fled the scene north on Seventh Street.

Police said they believe there was some sort of dispute prior to the shooting.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Easton detectives at 610-759-2200, 610-250-6667 or the Easton Police investigative tip line at 610-250-6635.  Callers can remain anonymous.
