The Atlanta Police Department are investigating two shootings and a carjacking that all happened in the same vicinity of the Old Fourth Ward, according to our affiliate CBS Atlanta.

At about midnight this morning, police responded to a call of a person shot in the shoulder at an apartment building at the intersection of North Avenue and Parkway Drive. About an hour later, police responded to a call of a person shot a block away at the intersection of Parkway Drive and Linden Avenue.

Those cases came on the heels of  carjacking at 3 a.m. on Sunday when a man with a gun ran up to an off-duty officer who was stopped at a light on Ponce de Leon Avenue at Argonne Avenue in Midtown. The man demanded the officer’s phone and car keys and took off in the car.
