Police lights

Four people were shot, two with serious injuries, during a six-hour span between Monday night and early Tuesday morning in Petersburg, police said.

The first shooting was reported at 7:38 p.m. in the Hinton Street area where officers found a person with life-threatening injuries. Less than an hour later, at 8:25 p.m., police responded to a shooting in the 400 block of Montibello Street. That victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Then at 10:35 p.m., police responded to a third shooting in the 2300 block of Navajo Court. The victim in that case was airlifted to a local hospital, police said.

Police initiated a fourth shooting investigation after a male victim arrived at a local hospital at 1:37 a.m. with a gunshot wound. Police said that shooting happened on Craterwoods Court.

In an update later Tuesday, police described one of the shootings as domestic and said a second shooting involved two family members who were wounded. Police said they had identified suspects in two of the shootings.
