Three people were hurt Thursday in two separate shootings and a stabbing in Richmond, a police sergeant said today.

The violence began at about 3:10 p.m. Thursday on a walking path in the 4600 block of Overend Avenue, where a 25-year-old man was shot in the abdomen, police Sgt. Al Walle said.

The victim wasn't able to provide investigators of a description of the shooter, but a witness saw a black sport utility vehicle leaving the scene.

That shooting was followed by a shootout in the 2900 block of Alta Mira Drive at about 8:50 p.m., Walle said.

The victim had left his house and was walking to his car when he saw a white Honda with several occupants driving toward him. As the car drove past the victim, one of the passengers began shooting at him, Walle said.

The victim's family members heard the gunfire, armed themselves with a pistol and a shotgun and went outside, where they started shooting at the people in the Honda, striking one of the suspects, Walle said.

The suspect was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.

Investigators interviewed the victim's family members, but no arrests were made, Walle said.

About two hours later, at 10:50 p.m., a 22-year-old woman got into an argument with her 56-year-old father at a home in the 200 block of Nevin Avenue.

The woman allegedly stabbed her father with an unknown object and then fled in a pink vehicle with the word "Barbie" written on the rear window. She was still at large as of this afternoon, Walle said.

Her father was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive.
