Police Investigating Double Shooting Of Teens On South Coast

Police say they are still trying to figure out what led to two teenagers being shot in Ventura.

Officers were called to a motel on the 2100 block of East Harbor Boulevard just before midnight Wednesday night, by reports of a shooting. They found a 17 year old boy, and an 18 year old each with gunshot wounds to their legs.

The two had apparently been fleeing a gunman when they were shot. Officers were unable to find the gunman, but are hoping the surveillance video from the motel might help identify him.
