City police were investigating at least two shootings Monday evening, in the Barclay and Druid Heights neighborhoods. 

Details weren't immediately available. The first incident was reported at 5:40 p.m. in the 2200 block of Guilford Ave., in the Barclay neighborhood just north of city schools headquarters. 

At the scene, the shooting appeared to have occurred inside a home. Children played basketball on a nearby court, and bicyclists diverted their paths around the crime scene. Residents said they didn't know what happened.

District detectives were investigating, indicating that the victim was expected to survive, but a police spokeswoman did not have the age of the victim or an account of the incident.

Police said a second shooting was reported on Pennsylvania Avenue at the intersection with Baker Street. Police couldnt immediately provide information on that incident, either.
