HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police say three people were shot in two separate shootings in Hartford.

Authorities say gunfire erupted outside a market and pizza shop around 6 p.m. Wednesday, and within minutes, another shooting took place about two miles away.

Police did not identify the victims, but Tammy Mendes of Hartford told New England Cable News her nephew was shot in the chest while he was being robbed. Police said Thursday all of the victims are expected to survive.

It was unclear whether the shootings were related in any way.

NECN says officials with Hartford’s major crimes division and shooting task force are investigating.
