A 33-year-old man was reportedly shot multiple times Wednesday evening in the 700 block of Mauch Chunk Street in Easton's South Side neighborhood, and police are searching for the gunmen.

The Easton Police Department says officers were dispatched to the area at about 5:22 p.m., where they found the victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Suspects in the case have been described as being three or four black males, wearing all black. Two of the suspects were reportedly wearing hooded sweatshirts.

Police say the gunmen may have fled the area in a black car, possibly a Dodge Charger, and that the vehicle possibly fled either east on Canal Street or east on Mauch Chunk Street after the attack.

The man was transported to a local hospital and is expected to survive the injuries, police said, adding that they are not currently releasing the victim's name. No possible motive for the shooting was immediately offered by authorities.

Police are asking anybody with any information about the crime to contact Easton detectives at 610-250-6656 or to call the Easton Police tip line at 610-250-6635. Callers can remain anonymous.
