Three people are hospitalized this morning after being shot in three separate incidents last night. In the earliest incident, an 18-year-old black man was walking at 13th Street and Cass Avenue in the edge of the Columbus Square neighborhood at 6:25 p.m. when he heard gunshots and took off running. He was hit once in the foot, and is in stable condition at the hospital. He refuses to tell police who was with when the shooting occurred.
At 11:50 p.m., a 21-year-old black man was walking in the 4800 block of Hammett Place in the Kingsway East neighborhood. A black male about 5'11" and wearing black clothing approached and shot him multiple times in the stomach and hip. He's in critical condition.
In the third incident, a 21-year-old black man was walking in the 3900 block of Greer Avenue in the Greater Ville neighborhood at 12:30 a.m. when he heard gunfire. He reached Vandeventer Avenue and encountered a driver holding a gun out the window, at which point he was shot in thigh. He couldn't provide a description of the shooter or the vehicle. The police could not locate a crime scene, either.
Police continue to investigate all three shootings.
