Police are seeking suspects in three overnight shootings that left two men and a woman dead and another man gravely injured.

In the first case, someone shot a 33-year-old man on Creighton Street near Wyalusing Avenue in Mill Creek at 11 p.m. last night, said Officer Jillian Russell, a police spokeswoman. That man died 17 minutes later at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

At about the same time, someone shot Thomas Samarco, 37, of Worth Street near Wakeling in East Frankford, in the shoulder and back on Allegheny Avenue near F Street in Kensington, Russell said. He died at the scene.

And just after 1:30 a.m. today, someone shot an 18-year-old woman in the head and 23-year-old man in the abdomen on Sebring Road near Shipley in Northeast Philadelphia, Russell said. The woman, whose name wasn't released, died at the scene. The man remains in critical condition at Aria Hospital's Torresdale campus, Russell said.

Police reported no suspects or motives in the cases. Tipsters can call homicide detectives at (215) 686-3334 or -3335.
