Metro Police are investigating "three shootings that left four injured Monday, including one that was fatal and a second in which the victim was arrested on other charges," a spokesman says.

One man died after he was shot in front of an apartment on the 1900 block of East 51st street about 7 p.m. His name has not been released by investigators.

Earlier, about 2:30 p.m., Rakeem Wright, 24, reported "he was talking to some women on the first block of West 62nd Street when he was shot by someone in a passing car," police say.

"He provided false information to Central Precinct officers who discovered 10 outstanding warrants against him," they add.

A second victim, Regeria Lynch, 19, arrived at a hospital hours later for treatment of her wound. Neither injury was believed to be life-threatening.

Just after midnight Sunday, Aaron Wurtsbaugh, 45, arrived at St. Joseph’s Hospital for treatment of a gunshot wound to his arm. He reported "he was delivering pizza at an apartment complex on the 12000 block of Middleground Road when a masked male attempted to rob him and fired at his car as he sped away."

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
