HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The victims of two recent shootings in the city are refusing to cooperate with authorities.

Police said a 25-year-old man shot early Sunday in the 200 block of North Second Street will not assist in identifying the shooter, and a 32-year-old man shot during a home invasion in the 400 block of South 17th Street early Tuesday has indicated he will not help investigators.

The victim of the North Second Street incident was shot in the face and in the back and is expected to recover.

Police said a second victim was shot in the finger and a nearby car had the rear window and driver’s side window shattered when four to five shots were fired at around 2:20 a.m.

In the South 17th Street incident, the victim told officers that four males came into a home with a handgun and semi-automatic rifle, demanded money from him, then shot him when he did not cooperate.

He sustained gunshot wounds to the lower left leg, buttocks and arm, two to the right thigh, and a grazing wound to a wrist. He is expected to recover.
