INDIANAPOLIS -- Two people were seriously injured in separate shootings in Indianapolis Wednesday evening. 

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department officers were first called to Sherman Avenue on the city's northeast side around 8 p.m. for a report of a man shot.

The victim told police that two people came into his apartment and one of them shot him. He was taken to Eskenazi Hospital in critical condition. Police said they do not know if there was any relationship between the victim and the shooter. They have no suspects at this time.

The second shooting happened around 9 p.m on the city's north side. Officers were called to the Philips 66 gas station at 34th Street and Capitol Avenue for a man who had been shot at least two times. That person told police that he was shot at another location and came to the gas station. Police have not been able to get any clear details on what led to that shooting. 

Police do not believe the two shootings are related.
