A nearby bystander was hit and taken to a local hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries.

It was the second shooting reported Wednesday afternoon on the city’s east side. Three people who were playing dice outside a store on East Berry Street were wounded in a drive-by shooting about 2:40 p.m., according to police and witnesses.

Perez said they did not yet know if the shootings were related.

A third shooting injured a man early Wednesday morning.

After being shot, the man was taken to the hospital in a private vehicle about 1:30 a.m., police said.
