LORAIN — A 30-year-old woman was rushed to Mercy Regional Medical Center Friday afternoon with a gunshot wound following a shooting in the 2900 block of Apple Avenue, according to Lorain police.

Multiple uniformed officers and detectives were at the scene between East 28th and East 30th streets at 5 p.m.

Cruisers blocked off a number of streets in the area to traffic, and yellow crime scene tape was strung up and down much of the 2900 block of Apple Avenue.

Lorain Police Capt. Mike Failing said police still were looking into the incident.

At least one person — it was not immediately known if they were a witness or a suspect — was driven from the scene in the back of a Lorain police cruiser.
