California borough police are investigating a shooting that occurred about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 400 block of Second Street.

Police Chief Rick Encapera confirmed that one person suffered “a lower body injury” from a bullet wound and was flown by medical helicopter to an unknown hospital. The wound occurred near “a major artery,” he said.

Encapera did not disclose the victim's name and no suspects were apprehended as of presstime.

Officers arriving at the police station approximately 11 p.m. referred questions to Encapera.

In an alert issued by California University of Pennsylvania, the suspects were described as two black males who fled in a dark-colored, four-door Audi with oversized chrome wheels.

A crowd of students walking near the scene said they had not heard of the incident. The shooting site is one block from the main campus.
