Three shootings in a 24-hour period left three men and a 16-year-old girl injured in Little Rock, a police spokesman said Sunday.

In the first shooting, officers were dispatched to the 3400 block of Baseline Road about 11:45 p.m. Saturday on a report of shots fired, Little Rock Police Department officer Steve Moore said.

Moore said police did not find a victim when they checked the area.

Less than an hour later, at 12:42 a.m., police were dispatched to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock on a report of a shooting, Moore said.

The girl, who had been shot in the leg, told detectives that she did not know where the shooting took place or who shot her. Moore said police went back to the location on Baseline Road and found a crime scene.

In the second shooting, officers were called to a hospital at 2:13 a.m. Sunday after a 19-year-old man was shot in the leg, he said.

The teenager told police that he was walking down a street when a vehicle pulled up and someone inside began shooting at him, Moore said.

Moore said the shooting occurred in the 6100 block of West 32nd Street near University Avenue.

In the third incident, officers were dispatched at 6:29 p.m. Sunday to an area near West 28th and Madison streets, he said.

Two young adults were injured in the shooting and taken to the UAMS Medical Center by private vehicle, Moore said.

One victim was shot in the buttock, he said, while the other had been shot in the leg.

The relationship between the victims was unknown Sunday evening, Moore said, and it was unclear whether the two shooting victims were taken to the hospital in the same vehicle or different vehicles.

All four victims are expected to survive their injuries, Moore said.

    Hey titleist - The saddest part is when people speak the truth they are labeled racist yet the only way to ever begin to solve the problem is to speak the truth.

    What is happening in Little Rock is the result of failed Republican and Democratic policies. We are funding people to be irresponsible parents. We are underfunding education and social services and birth control which could help prevent the development of thugs. There are many 10 year olds in the system who will be thugs if we do not improve the schools and social services. There are many 16 year olds in school now who will become the parents of thugs if we do not prevent teenage pregnancy and do not give them the skills to be better parents. Little Rock is a mess and the Republicans and Democrats are incompetent. People must demand better schools, social services, and criminal enforcement.

    CommunistMom, Government is the problem !!! Just look at what LBJ's welfare scheme did to the Black Community. The parenting skills of this Nation has all but been wiped out since the 1960's, for Black and White communities.
    However, the progressive movement that began before 1900, has ate away the moral code of our society. We don't need Social Services as a whole, nor better schools other than rejecting the progressive polices they follow. This said of our schools, they are very goods schools.
    The children that you speak of here are doomed already on a greater scale, other than moving them into a home of moral values, placed in a teaching environment with moral values. But most important, to have a moral male as a father in the home.
