When police arrived, they found a 20-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to her right thigh and a 19-year-old woman with a graze wound to her left calf.

Twelve minutes later, Northeastern district officers heard gunfire in the area of Belair Road and Chesterfield Avenue.

When officers were canvassing the area, they found a 40-year-old man with gunshot wounds to his groin. Police said the man was transported to an area hospital where he was listed in stable condition.
