Metro police responded to three fatal shootings Wednesday night in Oklahoma City.

Police received a call about a possible drive-by shooting in the 800 block of east Eubanks around 7:30 p.m. When officers arrived in the area they found a male, who appeared to be in his thirties, shot and lying in the front yard of a home. He was transported to OU Medical Center, but was pronounced dead at the hospital.

There was a second drive-by reported around the corner in the 3600 Lindsey St., but no people were hit. Some homes were damaged by bullets. Both drive-bys are believed to be related.

In the shooting at 6600 W. Wilshire, police say an altercation broke out in the breezeway of an apartment complex when shots were fired through a door. Two people were hit and both were transported to OU Medical Center. One person was pronounced dead at the hospital. The other was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

None of the victims have been identified by police at this time.

Oklahoma City Police already responded to a deadly shooting at a home in the 2700 block of NW 12th earlier Wednesday evening. A man was killed in that shooting.
