Two men were hospitalized after they were found shot in St. Paul about one block apart early Tuesday morning, police say.

Police were called about shots fired in the area of Western Avenue North and W. Lawson Avenue at about 12:15 a.m.

They found one man in the street who had multiple gunshot wounds, and then found another man about a block north, who had been shot in the arm and leg, WCCO reports.

Neither man had life-threatening injuries, police said. The two were rushed to Regions Hospital, the Star Tribune reports. One man required surgery, an officer told KARE 11.

It wasn't immediately clear if the two men shot each other or were shot by someone else. Police used a K-9 unit and helicopter as part of a search for suspects, but no arrests were made, KARE reports.
