MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police in Milwaukee are investigating three unrelated shootings that occurred within two hours on Christmas Eve.

Police on Friday said they have no suspects in custody in any of the shootings, the first of which happened around 8:20 p.m., when a 24-year-old Milwaukee man was shot while trying to obtain drugs. Police say the man was taken to the hospital by a friend and his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

The second shooting happened about 9:45 p.m. Police say the victim is a 25-year-old Milwaukee man whose injuries also are not life threatening. The circumstances of the shooting were not immediately released.

The third incident happened only about 20 minutes later, when a 27-year-old Milwaukee resident was shot as the result of an argument.

The three victims haven’t been publicly identified.
