GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) - Green Bay police are investigating three shootings that happened within one hour Thursday night.

According to a press release from the Green Bay Police Department, officers responded to a call of shots fired just before 7 p.m. on the 1200 block of Berner Street. Police said they found multiple shell casings, but no reports of injuries or property damage.

Then around 7 p.m. police were dispatched to the 200 block of De Leers for reports of multiple shots fired. Officials said no one was injured, but report a "significant amount of property damage."

Just 30 minutes later, officers responded to a third shots fired call in the 800 block of Hubbard Street. Police said no one was injured or hit by gunfire, but property damage was reported.

Police are working to determine if the shootings are related and if they're related to other shooting incidents that happened in the same areas. GBPD said they've called in extra resources to investigate.

In a statement, Green Bay police chief Chris Davis said he's very concerned about the high number of shootings that have occurred in the city this year and is troubled by the events that have occurred Thursday night.

“Three separate incidents of gunfire in our city in one evening are unacceptable. We are doing everything we can to hold those responsible for this violence accountable, along with addressing the systemic causes of violence in our community," Davis said.

If people have any information related to these incidents or other shootings that have occurred in the city, they can call the Green Bay Police Department at 920-448-3200. People can also provide tips anonymously through Green Bay Area Crime Stoppers at 920-432- 7867, online, or through the P3 app.

Additional information on the shootings will be provided on Dec. 10. GBPD will be holding a press conference with the mayor's office at 11:30 a.m. Friday to address gun violence prevention. The briefing will be livestreamed on the department's Facebook page.
