EAST SPENCER ó Police say they are still investigating three shootings over Memorial Day weekend.
Saturday night 20-year-old Dadrian Donald was shot in the leg by an unknown assailant with a shotgun. Donald told officers with the East Spencer Police Department that he was walking down Heiligtown Road when he was shot.
Police say Donaldís assailant may be the same person who stabbed 22-year-old Deshawn Outlaw at a Grant Street apartment last week. Outlaw has since been released.
Monday night two victims arrived at Rowan Regional Medical Center at different times and police were called.
To protect the victims, police said, names is not being released at this time.
But neither victim from Mondayís shootings are cooperating with police, authorities said.
East Spencer Assistant Chief Tim Wooten said the three men are doing fine and are expected to make full recoveries.
One of the victims was shot multiple times, and two of the three were flown to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Wooten said he wasnít sure if Mondayís shootings were connected to Saturdayís shooting of Donald, or to last weekís stabbing of Outlaw, but they could be.
ěWe get information off the street of people theorizing,î he said, ěso right now itís hard to tell.î
