TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Police in northwest Ohio are investigating a pair of fatal shootings that occurred within hours of each other.

A 20-year-old man and a 24-year-old man were killed in the shootings around three hours apart early Sunday in different parts of Toledo.

The Blade newspaper (http://bit.ly/1ek8Ba5 ) reports that the first happened in east Toledo and left 20-year-old Michael Macklin Jr. dead.

Police said he was shot in the driver's seat of his car while trying to flee others who may have gotten into an altercation with him at a downtown Toledo drinking establishment.

A few hours later, 24-year-old Michael Williams Jr. was found dead on a street in west Toledo.

No arrests have been made in either slaying. Autopsies were expected Monday.
