OPELIKA, AL (WSFA) -

The Opelika Police Department is investigating three shootings that happened Wednesday night. With no suspects named in any of the cases, investigators are turning to the public for help. 

According to authorities, the shootings happened within hours of each other, but right now they do not know if they are connected. 

The first shooting took place on W.E. Morton Avenue near Hurst Street around 6 p.m. Police say a suspect shot into a car. Two people were in the car and one person was wounded.

Around 8 p.m., a person shot into a home along Avenue B, but no one was wounded there.

A third shooting on Donald avenue, less than a mile from the second shooting, left one person injured.

With limited leads, OPD is requesting help from the public. 

"Anybody that saw, heard, or overheard anything that might be helpful in any of these three cases, please call. Any information is greatly appreciated. Nothing you might have heard or seen is too small. We absolutely need it and we are desperate for that information," said Bobby Kilgore with the Opelika Police Department. 

Anyone with any information is asked to please call the Opelika Police Department at (334) 705-5220. They can also call the Secret Witness Hotline at
(334) 745-8665.
