ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are investigating two unrelated triple shootings.

Police say two females and a male were shot about 5 p.m. Tuesday when an unknown shooter fired into a group of people who were fighting.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports it’s not known how many people were involved in the fight. A police spokeswoman says the women were in stable condition and the male victim was in critical condition.

Officials are also investigating another triple about 5 miles (8 kilometers) away from the first shooting. Police said late Tuesday that three male gunshot victims were being treated for their wounds.

No other details were immediately available.
