Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – Syracuse Police are investigating two city shootings that occured on Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

The first incident occurred at 9:35 p.m. at 108 Albert Terrace, where 24-year-old Adeer Nuwman was shot in the right leg. Police recovered several shell casings from the scene.
According to police, Nuwman was “completely uncooperative.” He was taken to Upstate University Hospital. Police do not believe his injury is life threatening.
The second incident occurred at 12:40 a.m. when police say 25-year-old Marcus Lyles was shot in the forearm and ankle at the corner of Garfield Avenue and East Borden Avenue.
