Then around 1:30 a.m., a man was shot inside his car on the northwest side. It happened on Pershing Road. The 20-year-old victim suffered three gunshot wounds and was transported to Methodist hospital in “very critical condition,” according to IMPD Captain Michael Elder.

Shortly after the shooting on Pershing Road, at 2 a.m., two people were transported to the hospital after a party on the west side. Captain Elder said there was a party going on inside a home at the 3400 block of Monninger Drive. This is on the west side, near West 34th Street and Georgetown Road.
