SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Spokane police say one person is dead and two are wounded after two separate New Year's Eve shootings in Spokane.

The Spokesman-Review (http://is.gd/cpIzP4 ) reports the first incident happened around 10 p.m., when police were called to a grocery store, where they found one man dead and another with gunshot wounds. Soon afterward, they arrested a man found hiding under a bridge. Police say the second victim is in critical condition at a Spokane hospital.

At about 3:15 a.m., police were called to a home where witnesses reported gunshots. They found an 18-year-old woman with at least two gunshot wounds in her torso. Police say it's unclear whether the incident was a drive-by shooting. Witnesses say they heard seven to 12 gun shots.

The young woman is in critical but stable condition at a local hospital.
