Officers say a second shooting victim showed up at Wishard Hospital.  The wounded man has been identified as 22-year-old Prince Bibbs, who is in serious condition.  

Police say Bibbs has two outstanding warrants in Marion County for burglary/theft receiving and the other for possession of marijuana.

Police are looking for a third person involved in the shooting.
