Two innocent bystanders were caught up in the crossfire of a shootout early Friday, Cincinnati police said.
It appears two gunmen - one in a green van on Reading Road and a second standing on Greenwood Avenue - fired at each other across Reading Road just after 1:30 a.m., said Lt. Tim Brown, the night chief.
Witnesses told investigators the weapons used in the offense sounded like automatic gunfire and as many as 15-20 shots were fired.
Three bullets hit a 54-year-old woman standing outside an apartment complex on Greenwood Avenue. She was shot in both legs.
A second innocent bystander, a 22-year-old man who was jogging down Reading Road, was shot in the left ankle.
Both were taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center. They are expected to recover.
