Three early Saturday shootings in the city hospitalized two people in critical condition, police said.

The first shooting had no reported injuries, police said, when multiple shots were fired into a sports bar on the 3400 block of North 2nd Street around 12:45 a.m. A projectile also came through the front window and shattered a nearby television, but no injuries were reported.

A 29-year-old woman was injured shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when she was shot by her ex-boyfriend on the 5600 block of Crowson Street in East Germantown, police said,

Police met her about a mile away, on the 6500 block of Chew Ave, and found her with one gunshot wound to her buttocks. She remains in critical condition at Einstein Medical Center. Police did not say how the woman got to Chew Avenue.

A few hours later, a 23-year-old man was shot inside a warehouse on the 2100 block of East Tioga Street in Kensington, near Port Richmond. Police arrived on the scene shortly after 4:30 a.m. and found the man unresponsive on the street outside the building, which they said is a multiple-story warehouse that housed 36 recording studios.

The man had been shot in the head, neck, and groin area, police said. Preliminary police reports listed two wounds, to the head and left shoulder.

He remains in critical condition at Hahnemann University Hospital.
