Police are investigating a shooting that happened early Thursday in Northampton County.
The shooting took place around 4:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Ferry Street in Easton.
After arriving on the scene, police found a victim in the unit block of South Eighth Street, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
The victim, a 21-year-old man, was taken to an undisclosed hospital for treatment and is expected to live.
Police said it appears before the shooting that two people had a dispute, and officers are now looking for two suspects.
The first suspect is described as an Hispanic man, 5 feet 7-8 inches tall, 130-140 pounds, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood down.
He was also described as having a New York accent. After the shooting, police said he fled east on Ferry Street.
The other suspect is a black man, 5 feet 9-10 inches tall, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood up. He also apparently talked in a New York accent.
He fled the scene north on Seventh Street.
