One man is dead and another is hospitalized after a midday shooting Tuesday on Brownstone Avenue near Tallmadge Avenue in Akron’s Chapel Hill neighborhood.

Akron police said a 27-year-old man was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital after the noon shooting, where he was pronounced dead.

A second victim was also taken to the hospital, where he was recovering from a gunshot wound to the shoulder. His wounds were not considered life-threatening, police said.

Both men were found inside a Brownstone Avenue home when police responded to a shooting in progress call.

Police said a black Jeep Cherokee was seen speeding away from the scene.

The Summit County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy on the slain man, but did not name him pending positive identification and notification of relatives.

Police did not have a description of any suspects Tuesday afternoon but were hoping a witness would come forward with details on the incident.
