A 31-year-old man was pronounced dead after being transported to Akron General Medical Center.
A second victim, a 28-year-old man transported to Akron City Hospital, had injuries that did not appear to be life threatening, police said.

The shots came from an SUV described as full-sized and charcoal gray with a bumper decal showing the image of yellow lips. A partial license plate was also seen containing the numbers of 2129.
A motive for the shooting had not been determined, and the names of the victims were being withheld pending positive identification and family notifications.
