Three men each sustained non-life-threatening injuries in separate shooting incidents Monday night and early Tuesday morning, according to Chattanooga police.

The first incident was reported at 7:33 p.m. Monday in the 1900 block of Garfield Street. When police arrived they found only a crime scene, but they were notified by a local hospital that a man had arrived there with injuries.

Investigators at the hospital said the 49-year-old victim told them he had driven himself there.

The second shooting was reported by a local hospital at 11:03 p.m.

The 21-year-old victim told police he was walking in the 4300 block of Dodds Avenue when he heard gunshots and ran. He then realized he had been shot and got a ride to the hospital, he told police. 

In the third incident, police again were notified by a local hospital of the arrival of a man with a gunshot wound.

Police responded to the hospital, but the 28-year-old victim was unable to say exactly where he was when he was shot, according to officers.

 He said someone in the vehicle in front of him began shooting at him so he left the area. He got a ride to the hospital after realizing he had been shot, police were told.

The investigations into these incidents are ongoing.

Chattanooga police are asking anyone with information about any of these shootings to call 423-698-2525 or submit a tip via the Chattanooga Police Department app. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
