Akron police say the victims heard a knock on the door just after midnight. When they answered the door, three men barged in. A 26-year-old man was pistol-whipped. The 37-year-old resident was shot in the buttocks. He was transported to Akron General Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries. 

A 24-year-old woman in the apartment was not injured.

The suspects, described as three black men, got away before police arrived. The shooter was about 5-foot 10-inches tall, thin and wearing a black ski mask, a black and gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.
