Police are investigating an early Sunday morning shooting at an Airbnb home in West Lampeter Township that sent two people to the hospital.

On Sunday morning, around 1:12 a.m., officers were dispatched to a home on the 1400 block of Old Lampeter Road for a shooting.

When police arrived at the scene they found spent shell casing in the street and bullet holes in a home on the block, according to the release.

Two injured victims were driven to two different hospitals in private vehicles and told staff they had been shot at a home in West Lampeter Township. One of the victims was shot in the buttocks and told hospital staff he had been at a party when he was shot, police said.
