BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Two Sunday morning shootings in Bridgeport left three people with injuries, according to the Connecticut Post.

A Barnum Avenue shooting at 1:48 a.m. involved a male victim shot in the arm, according to the report. He had surgery at Bridgeport Hospital, and his survival is likely, a police spokesman told the Connecticut Post.

An unidentified male shooter in a black jacket shot the victim and likely fled in a Honda, according to witnesses, the Connecticut Post reported.

The other shooting took pace at 2:17 a.m. near Capitol Avenue and Hudson Street, where police reportedly said there were shots in the vicinity and saw a Nissan Pathfinder leave the area, said the Connecticut Post report.

Police tried to stop the SUV, but the driver would not pull over and left the vehicle while it was moving on Main Street by Salem Street, the Connecticut Post said.

The SUV finally stopped by a curb, according to the Connecticut Post report.

The alleged shooter was not caught. The victims were a woman who was shot in her buttocks and left knee, and a man who was shot in a leg and the other leg was grazed. They were discovered at an address on Hudson Street out front, said the Connecticut Post.
