Danville- Police are investigating two overnight shootings that left a 21-year old woman dead and sent three other people to the hospital.

Later, at about 3:30 a.m. police received a call from another alleged shooting victim. The man reported he had also been shot in the home where police found Cross dead. He was transported for medical treatment and released.

Police did not return calls on Tuesday. No suspects have been reported at this time.
