Three men are fighting for their lives in the hospital Monday morning after a string of overnight shootings.

A Tampa police official says one of the shootings happened shortly before 2 a.m. in the area of North Edison and West Waters Avenues.

Two men were taken to the hospital with injuries so serious, homicide detectives were called to the scene as a part of the ongoing investigation.

Police do not yet know the names of the victims, and say they are seeking out possible witnesses for more information.

A third victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition after another shooting near the Sugar Shack nightclub on 40th Street.

Investigators are unsure where exactly the shooting happened, but say they are collecting evidence and questioning possible witnesses outside the nightclub.
