At 7 a.m. Saturday, officers responded to a call in the 800 block of Ohio Street and found a female, whose age was not immediately available, “with an apparent gunshot wound,” according to a statement from Gary police.

Eight hours later, a male was found in the area of 2nd Avenue and Bridge Street at 3 p.m. His age and cause of death were not immediately known.
