Violent Crimes detectives are investigating two shootings, occurring on Sunday night and early Monday morning, that left three victims with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

"At about 10:44 p.m. on Sunday, Metro responded to Memorial University Medical Center, where Jerome Robinson, 34, and Joe Strobert, 24, arrived in privately owned vehicles seeking care of gunshot wounds," police say.

"Minutes earlier, Metro responded to reports of a discharging firearm at Augusta Avenue and Portland Street. Robinson and Strobert were reportedly shot while attempting to leave the area."


Investigators are now searching for the occupants of a dark colored late-model Nissan Altima, last see traveling east on Comer Street.

"Also, at about 1:36 a.m. Metro responded to reports of a fight at an IHOP restaurant on the 1800 block of East Victory Drive. Responding officers observed evidence that shots were fired at the scene," police say.

Deshaun King, 19, arrived at MUMC in a privately owned vehicle seeking care of a gunshot wound. King was reportedly shot at the restaurant before police arrived.
