YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Youngstown Police are investigating three separate shootings that happened within about four hours.

Just before 11 p.m., officers were called to the 900 block of Burlington Avenue for gunfire and when they arrived they found a car in the road.

The driver told police she was arguing with a friend when the friend got out of the car and fired several shots from a semiautomatic handgun. The driver’s two children were in the back seat but they were not hurt.

Police found four .40-shell casings in the street and the driver told police she had a 50-round Erin magazine under the passengers seat. Reports said the driver told police the gun that her friend used belonged to her.

At about 11:35 p.m. police were called for gunfire in the 400 block of West Princeton Avenue and found a woman outside who said someone in a passing car fired several shots at her.

About a half-hour earlier, the woman’s brother was robbed and shot at outside the same house, reports said.

The woman was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center for a piece of shrapnel under her eye.

Then, at about 3:30 a.m., another shooting happened on East Evergreen Avenue.

Police say a man was shot in the shoulder.

All of the incidents are under investigation.
