MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

In the span of about four hours, there were three shootings overnight in Prichard. One on Wolf Ridge Road and another on Harriet Avenue and the third on Timothy Av. Four people were shot and at least one has died.

The first shooting happened at the Ridge Manor apartments in the 2000 block of Wolf Ridge Road. Investigators say a security officer was shot and killed. Apparently after answering some type of disturbance. Police say he was found outside of the complex around 10:30 or 11 last night. No word on his identity or if any arrest has been made. 

Prichard Police say the second incident happened just minutes later on the 300 block of Harriet Avenue between Telegraph Road and Dr. Martin Luther King Drive.  Police say one person was shot following some sort of confrontation in a house involving two people. Investigators do not believe the two shootings were related. 

The third shooting happened at a home on Timothy Avenue off of Meaher Street at around 2 am. Police say two people came to a home and were not allowed in and then refused to leave. Police have not said who shot the pair but they did say the two were taken to Mobile Infirmary and had non-life threatening injuries.
