MERCED — An investigation is continuing into the case of two men who showed up at Mercy Medical Center during the weekend with gunshot wounds, Merced police reported Monday.
Police learned of the incident at 2:10 a.m. Sunday.
An 18-year-old man with a gunshot wound to his hand had been brought to the hospital by a friend, who had a grazing wound to his foot, according to Lt. Bimley West.
