Akron Police are trying to find out who left three 15 year old boys injured on Saturday afternoon, after a drive-by shooting near the intersection of South Arlington Street and Delos.

They say they found one teen who had been shot in the leg, inside a nearby Dollar General Store, where he had gone after getting shot while walking down the street with two other boys. Police found a second victim, also shot in a "lower extremity", at a house in the 1100 block of Santee Avenue.

Both teens were taken to the hospital, and then later, the third shooting victim who got there on his own, also showed up at the hospital. None of their injuries were life-threatening.
