A man was shot in the neck and a woman stabbed in the arm in separate incidents two blocks and 20 minutes apart late Wednesday, Ferry-Fillmore District police said.

A man identified as Willie Garner, no address available, told officers he heard a shot and was struck in the neck while driving down Zelmer Street at 11 p.m. Garner was unwilling to answer further questions, according to police.

Garner, 31, was listed in fair condition at Erie County Medical Center, a police spokesman said.

On Peace Street about 20 minutes later, Selena M. Williams, no age or address available, said she argued with a man, whom she identified for police. Williams said as she got into her car to drive away, the man threw a knife at her and struck her in the left arm. She drove herself to Erie County Medical Center for treatment.
