MOBILE, Ala. — Two men who police say injured two others during separate shootings have been arrested.

AL.com reports that 26-year-old Clyde Coleman and 20-year-old Robert Blackmon were arrested after a police chase on Monday. They each face several charges, including assault and kidnapping.

Mobile police spokesman Donald Wallace says the first victim was found around 3:40 a.m., and the second victim was found around 6:50 a.m. Both victims were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It’s unclear if Coleman and Blackmon have lawyers.

Blackmon was one of the passengers in the car when then-officer Harold Hurst fatally shot 19-year-old Michael Moore during a traffic stop in June 2016. Police said Hurst thought Moore was reaching for a gun, but Blackmon said Moore never reached for a gun, despite having one.
