Dallas and Fort Worth police officers responded to unrelated shootings overnight Saturday into Sunday.

The first, in the 2400 block of Arbuckle Court in Dallas around 10:20 pm. Saturday, involved a man who said he was shot twice in his chest while he was robbed. 

The man told officers he was talking to a friend when an unknown man came up and demanded he hand over his property. The man refused, and the shooting suspect shot him. Officers administered first aid before Dallas Fire-Rescue could arrive, police said. The man is now in a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A few hours later, at 1:44 a.m., Fort Worth police responded to a shots fired call in the 6600 block of McCart Avenue. Upon arrival, police found multiple shell casings. Around 2:13 a.m., police were notified about a gunshot victim arriving at a nearby hospital. The victim had non-life-threatening wounds and is in stable condition, police said.

The suspect is still at large and police are still investigating.
