A double shooting is being investigated by the Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Office.

It happened at “2700 block of Russell Rd. in Saybrook Township” as deputies arrived on April 27 before 2 p.m. for that incident.

Not surprisingly, the shooting started from something that was going on social media.

According to deputies, one man drove to the other male’s residence and fired two shots toward the home.

A female was shot in the leg.

The suspect’s vehicle was shot at by the male who was living on the property.  Afterwards, the “other man” was also fired at and was shot.

The two were shot are being treated for their wounds.
