One man was shot in the chest and another in the hand during a fight early yesterday outside a nightclub in West Toledo, police said.
Marquis Mack, 21, of Fernwood Avenue, was taken to St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, where he was in serious condition last night. Police said Mack was shot in the chest.
The other victim, Eric Boatman, 19, of Norwood Avenue, took himself to St. Vincent, where he was treated and released yesterday.
Police responded to Club Rocks, 5020 Lewis Ave., about 2:10 a.m. on a report of a person shot.
Upon arrival, officers encountered a large group of people fighting.
Mack was found lying in the parking lot adjacent to the club, suffering from a gunshot wound.
Officers later stopped a vehicle matching the suspects' descriptions, but it is unknown at this time if they were involved in the shooting, police said.
