Two men were shot in front of a gas station near the city-county line early Saturday morning, according to Baltimore County police.

Officers found the injured men in the 5300 block of Edmondson Ave. at about 1 a.m. Both had been shot at least once by a person who approached them while they were standing in front of a Shell gas station there, police said.

The two men were taken to local hospitals, but police had no information about their conditions.

Detectives from the police department's violent crimes unit are looking for information on the shooter and are trying to determine whether the crime was random.
