Scant leads in double shooting

Little new information was available Wednesday about a man who shot two people in broad daylight Tuesday afternoon on the city’s southeast side, police said.

Shortly before 5 p.m., officers arrived at the scene of a shooting at Smith Street and Senate Avenue.

Both were taken to a hospital. Starts was listed in critical condition, and Collins was in stable condition. Updated information about their conditions was not available Wednesday.
