TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -The Tallahassee Police Department is reporting three different overnight shootings within a span of two hours.

The first shooting happened near Grady Road and Steele Drive around 2:03 a.m., and no injuries were reported. TPD told WCTV Monday that two cars exchanged gunfire, and officers chased the vehicles. One of them got away, but the other crashed in the retention pond at the I-10 on-ramp at Thomasville Road, the incident report says.

The three men in the car that crashed were arrested, but they did not tell police who was in the other vehicle.

The second shooting happened between W. Gaines Street and Railroad Ave around 2:46 a.m.

TPD told WCTV that gunshots were heard in a parking lot but upon their arrival, no one was on the scene. Officers did find shell casings on Gaines Street, the incident report says.

The third shooting happened on Dixie Drive around 3:36 a.m. Officers learned a teenage girl was taken to a hospital in the area for treatment of a minor gunshot wound.

The incident report says friends of the victim told police the shooting happened after an argument escalated.

“The suspect and victim are known to each other and all parties involved have been identified,” the report says.

The only arrests made so far were in connection to the shooting between two cars near the intersection of Grady Road and Steele Drive.

No further information has been released.
