Columbus Police are investigating the stabbing deaths of two people Monday morning on the East Side, after reporting at least three shooting around the city the day before.

Police say two people were killed and a third were hospitalized at Mann's Mobile Home Park on Stelzer Road.

Late Sunday, police said that a 17-year-old boy was shot while riding a bike in the Driving Park neighborhood. A man was shot during a fight in the Hilltop, and a 23-year-old man says he was shot by an unknown person in Deshler Park.

No suspects or motives were reported in any of the shootings.

The rash of violence came a day after one man was killed and three others injured in a shooting at a South Linden motorcycle club. The Toros Motorcycle club was the scene of a similar shooting last year.

Two other men, aged 29 and 33, were treated at hospitals for gunshot wounds and are expected to recover, police said
