Two men are being treated at Johns Hopkins Hospital after they were shot in East Baltimore early Saturday, according to city police.

Officers responded to a call about 1:25 a.m. to East Preston and North Aisquith Avenue, but Det. Donny Moses, a police spokesman, said the victims were not there. A few minutes later, police were notified that two men with gunshot wounds walked into the Hopkins emergency room.

Moses said that each man, ages 28 and 35, had been shot several times in the legs. They were rushed into surgery and were in serious but stable condition on Saturday. Moses said police located "several potential witnesses" who "heard the shots and ran to the scene" but are saying they didn't see what happened.
