An investigation is underway in Manchester, New Hampshire, following a triple shooting on Friday night, police said.

A call came in to the Manchester Police Department around 10:30 p.m. for a report of three people who were shot in the area of Auburn and Union streets, officers from the department said Saturday morning.

All three victims are being treated at local hospitals, police said. Officials do not believe that this was a random act of violence.

Later in the evening, around 1:20 a.m., Manchester Police received a call reporting gunshots outside of 3 Kitchen Bar & Grill. Shell casings were discovered on the ground, but no victims were discovered upon arrival by authorities. An argument outside the bar is believed to have led to the gun shots, police said.

It is unclear if the two shootings are related at this time.

Both incidents remains under investigation and people are being asked to avoid the area where the shootings took place. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call 603-668-8711 or anonymously at 603-624-4040.
