Chattanooga Police are investigating two early morning shootings.

Police responded to the Kangaroo gas station, 4900 Brainerd Rd., shortly after 2:30 a.m., where they learned that 18-year-old Emmanuel Harris had suffered a gunshot. He was transported to a local hospital and is listed in stable condition today, Police spokesman Officer Nathan Hartwig said.

A Chattanooga Police officer was flagged down about an hour later by George Dillard, 22, and Alisha Twitty, 24, on Rossville Boulevard. Police say Dillard was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and Twitty had minor injuries to her face.

Both were transported to a local hospital for treatment where they are listed in stable condition. Investigators found that the original incident occurred at 4107 Fagan St. and believe that Dillard was targeted by an unknown suspect.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525.
