SAN BERNARDINO >> Police are investigating four separate non-fatal shootings that happened in an eight-hour span Wednesday night and early Thursday across San Bernardino, a police official said.

Sgt. Shauna Gates declined to say whether the shootings might be connected. Most of them were separated by at least a mile. All four people who were shot were taken to hospitals and are expected to survive.

The first of the shootings was reported shortly before 6:15 p.m. in the 2200 block of East Sunrise Lane. Officers arrived to find a man with multiple gunshot wounds lying in an alley.

The second was reported shortly before 7 p.m. in the 1600 block of East Highland Avenue. Gates said someone had reported to authorities that a man had taken off with his bike earlier in the week. When the victim found the man and confronted him, she said, the man shot him and took off with the stolen bike.

The third shooting was reported about 12:15 a.m. in the 700 block of North H Street. Police received a report of a shooting and found a wounded man lying in the courtyard of an apartment complex. He has not been cooperative with authorities, Gates said.

The last shooting was reported about 2:15 a.m. in the 1300 block of North Belle Street. A man and his girlfriend were sitting in their vehicle when someone pulled up beside them and fired one shot that struck the man in the arm.
