Waterloo police are investigating a shooting that happened around 4 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Two people with gunshot wounds were found at 1200 Ackermant Street, blocks away from where the shooting is believed to have happened.

The two victims were able to drive a black SUV to the home on Ackermant to find help.

The black SUV is at the center of the investigation. 

The airbags on both the driver and passenger sides of the SUV were deployed and the front bumper was damaged.

The front windshield was also shattered on the driver's side, possibly from a bullet piercing it.

Waterloo Fire and Rescue say one man was in the Ackermant house and the other was still in the car when they arrived at the scene.

At the same time, police were also investigating a shooting in the 100 block of Center Street, likely related to the two victims.

At the Center Street location, police were paying close attention to a cement barrier that was upturned and a fence that was damaged; both possibly causing the damage to the SUV's bumper.

The shooting remains under investigation.
