Three people were injured Sunday in shootings in Duquesne and Turtle Creek, Allegheny County police said.

The shootings were not fatal, though homicide detectives are investigating.

In the first incident, county police said two victims were sitting in a car in the 1000 block of Lincoln Avenue in Duquesne at 3:57 a.m. Sunday when another car pulled alongside of theirs. Someone inside the other car then opened fire on the first vehicle, county police said in a prepared statement.

The victims were transported to a local trauma center where both underwent surgery, police said. One of the victims is in critical condition; the other is listed in stable condition. Police did not release their names or ages.

In the other incident, county police said a man was shot in the back just after 4 p.m. Sunday in the 500 block of Larimer Avenue in Turtle Creek. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

No further details were released.

Anyone with information on the shootings is urged to contact the Allegheny County Police Tipline at 1-833-ALL-TIPS (1-833-255-8477); callers can remain anonymous, police said.
