NOW: South Bend residents react to Sunday shootings

SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- Sunday, four people were shot in three separate shootings. Officials say the shootings are unrelated, but the suspects in each case are still at large.

At 2:43 a.m. Sunday morning, two IUSB baseball players were shot at a party. An hour later, a woman walked into the hospital with her 11 month old grandson who had been shot in the shoulder.

That night, a man was shot on Kayley Street after he was robbed by a man staging as a woman he’d met online.

“I was pretty surprised. I heard about them over the weekend,” said Phillip Rozinski. “I don’t know what’s going on with all the shootings.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg also weighed in on the shootings saying:

 “One incident of gun violence is one too many. We are working diligently to ensure levels of gun violence this year continue to go down from previous levels. In order to break the cycle of violence, we need those who know something to say something. Public safety is a community-wide effort.”

Officials say the victims are expected to recover. South Bend Police ask that anyone with any information on these cases reach out to them.
