Two cars — both Chevy Malibus — were hit by gunfire Thursday night in South Akron in separate incidents that happened about two hours apart.

A 65-year-old man and his 4-year-old grandson were in one of the cars, but neither was injured, police said.

The first shooting happened about 9 p.m. in the 1200 block of Grant Street.

When officers responded to calls of shots fired, they found four shell casings in the street. A few hours later, a 26-year-old man reported that his 2016 Malibu, which was parked on the street, had been hit by a bullet.

The second incident happened at 11 p.m. and was about two-tenths of a mile from the first.

Officers responded to a call of shots fired at the intersection of East Emerling Avenue and Bellows Street.

There, the man told police that he and his grandson were in his 2013 Malibu when someone fired several shots in the area, striking his car.

Police did not say whether the shootings are connected.

No suspects were identified or described in either shooting, police said.

Police ask anyone with information about either case to contact detectives at 330-375-2490 or the Akron police tip line at 330-375-2TIP.
