The Athens Police Department on College Street on Sept. 18. (FILE)

Person shot in possible burglary

Someone was shot during an alleged burglary in Athens, according to a news release from the Athens Police Department.

APD received a 911 hang-up call Monday from 42 W. Carpenter St. Officers were told a burglary had occurred at the residence. They determined someone was shot during the incident and fled the scene before officers arrived.

Two light-skinned black men left the area in a black four-door Honda Accord, according to the news release. Both were about 6 feet 3 inches tall. One was about 220 pounds, and the other had a “slender build.”

APD later received a call that a gunshot victim had arrived at the OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital emergency room. That person was treated and transported to a hospital in Columbus.

The incident is under investigation, according to the news release.
