Two teenagers were each shot in the leg in separate incidents Tuesday night, police reported.
Neither received a life-threatening wound, and police asked the public to give them any information that might help them identify suspects.
Shortly before 8 p.m., Michael Gibson, 18, was shot while he was standing in a common area behind Building 23 in the city’s McDougald Terrace public housing complex, police said.
They said several people were seen running from the area after the shooting.
