Lancaster city police are investigating three separate shootings that left three people injured since Monday.

Two of the shootings occurred Monday less than three hours apart in the area of South Ann Street.

The first shooting was reported in the 200 block of South Ann Street at 3:15 p.m., according to a Wednesday news release. Police said they found “an adult male shooting victim” from the city and provided medical treatment before taking him to a hospital.

Eyewitnesses said that the shooting was a drive-by, as previously reported by LNP | LancasterOnline. 

At 6:04 p.m. police were dispatched to the area of South Ann and Chesapeake streets, about four blocks south of the first shooting, for a report of shots fired, according to the release. Officers later learned another male shooting victim had been dropped off at a hospital.

Both men’s injuries were not life threatening, according to police.

A call made to Lancaster city police inquiring as to whether the shootings might have been connected was not immediately returned. 

At 9:52 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to a report of a shooting at Second and Pearl streets. Police said they found an “adult female shooting victim” from the city. They provided medical treatment before taking her to a hospital with what they said were non-life-threatening injuries.
