BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) -

Three people were shot in two separate weekend Bridgeport shootings over the weekend, according to police.

In one incident, a man was shot multiple times in the right arm, according to police.

Officers said the victim was shot at 1725 Barnum Ave. Sunday just after 1:45 a.m.

Eyewitnesses told police that a man wearing a black jacket approached the victim and fired before casually walking away.

The shooting caused substantial injury and blood loss, police said.

The man was transported to Bridgeport Hospital for treatment and is expected to survive. 

Police said the suspect may have left the scene in a white-colored Honda.

In the second shooting, an officer on patrol reported shots fired in the area of Capitol Avenue and Hudson Street just after 8:15 p.m.

A Nissan Pathfinder was spotted fleeing the scene. The driver, however, refused to stop. The driver eventually bailed out of the moving vehicle on Main Street near Salem Street, according to police.

The vehicle rolled for several hundred feet before coming to rest along a curb.

The driver was not caught, police said.

Police said they found two gunshot victims, a man and a woman, in front of 60 Hudson St.

The man had a serious wound to his left leg and a graze to his right. He is expected to survive.

The woman was hit in the buttocks and left knee. She's also expected to be ok.

Police said both victims were inside their home on Hudson Street and there was a group outside making noise.

The man asked the group to keep the noise down and at some point ended up outside. The woman also heard the commotion and went outside.

Both were shot soon afterward, investigators said.

Anyone with information on either shooting is asked to contact Bridgeport police.
