KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Breaking overnight, multiple people are shot in what's already a violent holiday weekend for a West Michigan community.

Newschannel 3's Aaron Dimick is live at Kalamazoo Public Safety headquarters, where it was a very busy night. Officers are looking for suspects after four people were shot.

The first shooting happened around 1:45 a.m. Saturday, at Douglas Ave. and Mason St. on the city's Northside. From what police can tell, there was a big party going on and then multiple shots were fired.

Officers were already patrolling the area and got on scene quickly. Newschannel 3 was told three people were shot. A man, shot in the face, drove himself to the hospital. Two women were also hit. There's no word yet on their conditions.

The second shooting happened a short time later, also on the north side, at Burdick and Clay streets. Another large gathering that led to a shooting. One man was shot in the leg and is expected to recover.

James Hughes, a witness at the earlier shooting, says this is happening more and more. "Lately, it hasn't been unusual with everything that's been going on. But we need to slow down a little bit and figure out what it is we need to do, just calm down for a minute," he says.

The search continues for the suspects. There's no word yet on if these shootings are related.4 people wounded in 2 overnight Kalamazoo shootings
