BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WEEK) -- -

Two men are injured after a shots fired incident was reported in Bloomington.

Police responded to Monroe and McLean around 1:15 a.m. Monday on a report of multiple shots fired. A 19-year-old man with a gunshot wound was found near East and Jefferson and transported to a local hospital. A second 19-year-old man, injured by "unknown causes," said both men were in a vehicle driving when another vehicle approached and a person or people inside began to shoot towards them. That man was also taken to a local hospital. 

An abandoned vehicle with a rear broken window and the engine still running was found in the intersection of Monroe and McLean. Multiple shell casings were found, and several callers reported hearing multiple gunshots. 

The conditions of either man are not currently known.
