Two men were hurt, one seriously, when men armed with metal pipes began fighting in Shelton Sunday, according to police.

Just before 7 p.m. Sunday, Shelton police were dispatched to the 1900 block of Adams Street after a report of a “large group of men fighting in the street with metal pipes,” a news release reads.

When police arrived, they found a man with serious head injuries who was later flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The man was listed in stable condition Monday.

A second injured man also was found in the 800 block of K Street. Although he suffered injuries to his head and arm, he refused to cooperate with the investigation, according to police.

The other men involved in the fight fled on foot and in vehicles, according to police.

“We are not ruling out the possibility that this is gang related, based on the color of clothing and known criminal history of the individuals involved,” Police Captain Mike Fiola said in a statement.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Shelton police at 360-426-4441.
