4 hurt in 2 Lorain shootings


LORAIN — Police responded to two separate shootings that left four people injured Friday night and Saturday morning.

On the west side, two men were shot about 10 p.m. Friday. They were found in a front yard in the 1300 block of West 17th Street, according to Capt. Michael Failing.

Both were flown to MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland; the extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.

Failing said police are not releasing the victims’ names or information about possible suspects at this time.

About four hours later, police responded to the Off Shore Bar and Grill, 1407 Colorado Ave., for two men shot as the bar let out shortly before 2:30 a.m.

Charlie Mundo, 34, and Julian Smith, 32, both of Lorain, were transported to Mercy Health with non-life threatening injuries, Failing said.

According to county court records, Mundo pleaded guilty to obstructing justice in connection with the 2004 shooting death of Samuel Walls. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

Smith pleaded guilty in 2007 to a voluntary manslaughter for his role in the shooting death of Darren English during a botched robbery two years prior. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison.

There are no suspects in the Saturday morning shooting.

Both incidents are under investigation.
