Detroit Police are investigating a trio of unrelated shootings that happened early Friday morning and left four people wounded, officials said.

The first shooting happened a little after 1 a.m. in the 16800 block of Steel Street near Six Mile and the Lodge Freeway on the city's west side, police said.

The victims, two 38-year-old men, were shot multiple times and are listed in serious condition at a hospital, according to authorities.

Officials said the two men were sitting in a 2017 Chevrolet Suburban in front of a home when they were shot. 

Police said they don't have any information on the suspect and it's unclear if the shooter or shooters left the scene on foot or in a vehicle.

They said the second shooting happened at about 2:10 a.m. in the 12300 block of Wyoming Avenue near Fullerton Avenue, also on the west side. The victim is a 27-year-old man who was shot in the thigh.

Police said the victim told investigators he had an argument with someone over video games and that person shot him. He also told officers that he walked two-tenths of a mile to a gas station in the 12000 block of Grand River Avenue where police and emergency medical technicians were called.

The third shooting happened at 4:15 a.m. in the 2400 block of Junction near Toledo Street in southwest Detroit.

Officials said the victim, a 30-year-old male, was shot in the left hand and taken to a hospital.

Police are looking for a suspect described as a black male in his 40s, 6-feet-1-inch tall, 190 pounds and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

The victim told detectives he was approached by the suspect as he walked into his home. The suspect pointed a gun at the victim, demanded money, fired at him and then fled on foot, according to officials.
