Two people were hospitalized in serious condition Tuesday after a shooting in a home on Fort Wayne's south side, police said.

Fort Wayne police were called shortly after 1:30 p.m. Officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds in a home in the 2900 block of Gay Street. One man was found lying on a couch with a bullet wound to his left leg. The other man was shot in his right arm and right leg, police said.

One of the victims told police he and a group of people were leaving a nearby funeral when a “bunch of dudes” began shooting at the car one of the victims was in. The victims told police they did not know the shooters.
