TROY, N.Y. -- Troy police are investigating two different shootings Wednesday night that injured three people.

According to police, two people were shot on 6th Avenue -- between 122nd and 123rd streets -- around 7:30 p.m.

The man and woman have since been released from the hospital.

Police closed off the area during the initial investigation and canvassed the neighborhood.

A neighbor says he heard five shots fired.

As of now authorities don't have any information on suspects.

Investigators are still trying to determine if an earlier shooting on Ingalls Ave. is related, where a man was taken to St. Mary's hospital after he was shot around 5:30 p.m.

Police say he is in stable condition, but there is no word on any suspects in that case either.

Chief Brian Owens says innocent people are being put at risk.

"It's extremely concerning, obviously people that are willing to commit a crime and use guns for violence, they just have no respect for life. As you can see this is a normal neighborhood in the city.  At the time of the earlier shooting and this time, normal people would be out, during the summer weather or coming home from work so we share their concern,” he said.

The names and ages of the victims have not been released at this time.
