Two men were found shot in North Baltimore on Thursday night, according to city police.

Police first responded to the 6000 block of Bellona Avenue just before 10 p.m. for a report of a shooting to find two men in a car, each with one gunshot wound to the arm, according to Detective Jeremy Silbert, a police spokesman. Silbert said the men's injuries were non-life-threatening.

A preliminary investigation showed the men were not shot at that location but drove there after being shot, Silbert said.

"We're working to determine where the actual shooting occurred," Silbert said.

Silbert said he believed the shooting occurred within the city limits, but did not know whether it occurred in North Baltimore or in the city's Homeland neighborhood, where the men were found.

The location is relatively close to the Baltimore County line.

Silbert said police had no suspects or motive in the shooting as of late Thursday, but the investigation was ongoing.

No further information was immediately available.
