AKRON (TNS) — A 21-year-old Canton woman was shot over the weekend in the 300 block of South Main Street between Exchange Street and Cedar Avenue.

The shooting happened just before 4 a.m. Saturday, police said.

As officers reported to calls of shots fired downtown, the injured woman — shot more than once in the left leg — was apparently en route to Cleveland Clinic Akron General a couple of blocks away, police said.

When officers found the woman was at the hospital, she told them the shooting happened at a private party on South Main Street.

The police report didn’t provide a name or description of a suspected shooter.
