Kansas City police were investigating three shootings from over the weekend that left three people with injuries not considered life-threatening.
Police responded about 10 p.m. Friday to a hospital to the first shooting. The victim was unable to provide information about the shooting.
A witness in the hospital lobby, however, told officers that they were near 52nd Street and Wabash Avenue when the shooting occurred, police said.
The witness heard one shot and then saw that the victim had been hit by gunfire. A friend took them to a hospital. Both the victim and witness would not provide any more information, police said.
Never miss a local story.
The second shooting occurred about 11:05 p.m. Friday near 55th Street and Wabash Avenue.
A police officer on patrol heard several gunshots. The officer saw a red SUV fleeing from the area at high speeds. The officer pulled the SUV over and detained four people inside. A gun was found inside the SUV, police said.
The people in the SUV told police that they had heard the shots so they fled. Police arrested three of the occupants on outstanding warrants.
Moments later, an officer working off-duty at a hospital told police dispatchers that a gunshot victim had arrived at the emergency room.
The victim said he was inside a house in the 5500 block of Wabash when he heard a knock at the front door. When he opened the door, someone shot him multiple times.
The victim said others inside the house at the time of the shooting took him to the hospital. He was expected to survive.
The third shooting occurred about 3:35 p.m. Sunday in the 200 block of East 68th Street.
Officers responding to the scene found the alleged shooter standing at the door and the victim inside a bedroom. Police took one person into custody without incident and found the firearm.
The victim was taken to a hospital with a serious but not life-threatening injury to the leg.
The three shootings come at a time Kansas City is seeing a rise in the number of people being wounded by gunshots.
In addition to those shootings, others were injured by gunfire this past weekend.
Another victim says he was driving on Interstate 470 early Sunday when another vehicle pulled next to him and started firing shots into the passenger side of his vehicle.
