FARMINGTON — The Farmington Police Department is investigating two separate non-fatal shootings on Feb. 19 that left two men injured. One of the men was shot five times.

Police offered very little information on both shootings as the investigations are still underway.

Officers were dispatched around 10:11 p.m. on Feb. 19 to Kiwanis Park at 3540 E. 30th Street to investigate a reported shooting.

A man had called 911 and told a dispatcher that that he had been shot near the park, according to Farmington Police Department spokesperson Nicole Brown.

The other shooting happened during the early morning hours.
