According to Longview police, on Tuesday just after 1 p.m., Longview police officers were notified that two subjects had been taken by private cars to Good Shepherd Medical Center following a shooting.

When officers arrived at Good Shepherd, they located two male victims who had been involved in the shooting. According to statements made, officers were able to determine that the shooting occurred in the 1200 Block of Lorin Drive.
