Police have arrested two suspects in relation to a shooting in Parma that happened on Tuesday.

Police responded around 4:45 p.m. to Moul Road for a report of a man who was shot in the abdomen while working on his property.

Police say as they responded, they could hear shots being fired in the distance. Deputies located the shooters, Ryan G. Pellman, 34, of Greece and Matthew E. Rodgers, 35, of Hilton in an area behind and to the west of North Avenue.

Pellman and Rodgers were allegedly shooting paper targets without the use of a backdrop.

Once the shooting had ceased, deputies located the victim, Kevin R. Flannery, 42, about 800 feet south of where they responded.

Flannery was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital, where he remains in critical condition, as of Wednesday night.

Pellman and Rodgers were arrested and charged with second degree assault and second degree reckless endangerment.

Both were arraigned in Parma Town Court and were remanded to the Monroe County Jail in lieu of $1,000 cash bail or $5,000 bond. Both individuals posted bail and were released from jail.

A Go Fund Me account has been set up for the family, in an effort to help raise funds toward his medical bills. The Go Fund Me site can be found, here
