Tucson Police are investigating a shooting on the east side of town that happened on Wednesday night.

TPD spokesperson Sgt. Kim Bay said the incident happened in the 6600 block of East Calle Betelgeux near 22nd and Wilmot. 

Calls came in around 7:15p.m. When officers arrived, they found two teenage males with obvious signs of gunshot trauma.

Both were transferred to the hospital; one teen is in serious but non life-threatening condition, and the other is in life threatening condition. 

Police gave both teens medical treatment when they arrived. The Tucson Fire Department showed up shortly after. 

Two other teens were seen running from the scene, but police are unsure if there is any connection. 

The incident happened on the street and the road will likely be closed for the next few hours.
