No arrests so far in three separate weekend shootings in Harrisburg.  The first shooting happened at about 8 o’clock Saturday evening when police patrolling the Hall Manor Housing Complex heard numerous shots being fired.  Witnesses say they saw two men fighting and one of them dropped a handgun.

While the investigation continued at Hall Manor, a 22 year old black male, arrived at Hershey Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his arm. He claimed he was wounded in the uptown area, and not Hall Manor. However the victim is known to frequent the Hall Manor area. He was uncooperative with investigators.

The second incident occurred at about 3:30 Sunday morning.   The victim, an 18 year old white male, walked in the ER at Harrisburg Hospital with a gunshot wound to his leg.  He told police that he was leaving an “after hours club” in the 500 block of South 19th street and heard shots being fired. He realized that he had been shot in the leg.  The victim was fairly uncooperative giving few details about the shooting.

The third incident was at about 5:45 Sunday morning,  Police observed a 28 year old black male being assisted as he walked toward the Harrisburg Hospital ER.  He had been shot in the leg.  The victim said that he was walking around the area of South 13th and Kittatinny streets when he was shot by an unknown assailant.  He was also  uncooperative and did not provide anymore details to police investigators.

Anyone with information on any of the three cases is asked to call (717) 255-3157 or (717) 255-3154 or the Dauphin County Police dispatch at (717) 558-6900 and ask for a city detective.
