LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Oldham County Police say two people were injured after three separate shootings in the county Tuesday night.

According to police, all three shootings came from inside a red or maroon passenger car. In all cases, the victims reported that the car began tailing them before the shots were fired at their cars.

"Completely unusual for Oldham County," said Sgt. James Brown with the Oldham County Police. 

"They said the vehicle came up behind them, tailgating them and after that the next thing they knew, shots had been fired at the vehicle,” added Sgt. Brown.

Police say the first shooting took place near the intersection of Hwy. 53 and Hwy. 22, near a Marathon gas station in Ballardsville. No one was injured at that scene.

The second incident took place on KY 393, near I-71 north. Police say two people were shot in a car at that location. They suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Police were forced to block off a portion KY 393 Tuesday night to gather forensic evidence. 

The third incident took place on I-71 South near the line between Oldham County and Jefferson County. No one was injured at that location.

Police say they believe the incidents are related.

"Certainly, for here, it is very unusual, but given the fact the proximity of them, the locations of them, the same descriptions of it, we very well believe it to be the same shooter the same vehicle," Sgt. Brown said. 

No arrests have been made at this time. Oldham County police say they are working with Louisville Metro Police regarding a possible similar shooting that took place in the 8th division. 

Any possible witnesses or other persons with information regarding these shootings are encouraged to notify the Oldham County Police Department.
