A teenage boy and a man were wounded Thursday evening in two separate shootings that Garden Grove police today said they think are unrelated.

Officers were called to the 12000 block of Sunswept Avenue around 5 p.m. and said they found shell casings but no victim. A short time later, a 15-year-old youth was treated at Garden Grove Hospital Medical Center for gunshot wounds in his shoulder, foot and arm, Lt. Robert Fowler said. The youth is expected to recover.

At 8:43 p.m. officers were called to Flower Street and Stanford Avenue where they found a 24-year-old man on a lawn with a gunshot wound to the stomach. He was transported to UCI Medical Center. Fowler said he is in serious condition.

Police said the earlier shooting may be gang-related. Investigators are looking for two or four male suspects with shaved heads who fled in a blue, four-door sedan. Two male suspects in the second shooting fled on foot.
