CONCORD -- Two people were injured Friday, one seriously, in what police said were unrelated shootings just hours apart.
The most serious of the two incidents occurred around 6 p.m. at a Wendy's restaurant located at 1551 Monument Blvd. Police arrived there to find a man in the parking lot with a life-threatening gunshot wound.
Concord police Lt. David Hughes said investigators determined that the man had been involved in a physical confrontation with a group of men inside the restaurant. When the victim went outside he was shot by one of the men, who then fled.
The wounded man was taken by ambulance to a local hospital for emergency treatment.
Police are not releasing additional details about the shooting while the case is under investigation, Hughes said.
The earlier shooting, around 3:40 p.m. on Grant Street in North Concord, resulted in minor injuries to the victim. There were no other details.
Hughes said there is no evidence the two shootings were related.
