Police: Teen arrested in flare gun shootings

TOLEDO (AP) — Police in Ohio say a 17-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with two flare gun shootings that injured two people.

The Toledo Police Department announced the arrest on its Facebook page and Twitter account Friday evening but provided no additional details.

Both victims were shot in the face.

The first shooting happened Sunday. A 36-year-old woman said six young men jumped into her car at a gas station. She drove herself to a hospital where she was treated for severe burns.

Police say the second shooting occurred in a different Toledo neighborhood Tuesday. A 16-year-old boy told officers he was walking along a street when two young men approached and one of them shot him with a flare gun.
