Three separate shootings across Miami on Saturday night left two people dead and three people wounded, according to reports.

A shooting at 19th Avenue and Northwest Second Court left a victim in critical condition, reported WSVN. That victim was later pronounced dead.

There appears to have been a second victim, who was shot multiple times but stable.

Another shooting at Northwest 69th Street and 19th Avenue left a 15-year-old boy in critical condition, and he later died as well.

A nearby incident, which may have been an extension of that scene, also appears to have left a 21-year-old in extremely critical condition, according to CBS Miami. The broadcaster said he was shot at NW 69th Street and 7th Avenue.

Another shooting on NW 69th Street and 10th Avenue left a male in critical condition after being shot in the head.

And yet another victim came under fire at Northwest 65th Street and Seventh Avenue, reported WSVN. That victim is in critical condition. 

Both reports said there were only three shootings, but listed mostly different sites so either one or more gun battles extended beyond a specific intersection or there were more shootings.

“As of right now we don’t know the circumstances surrounding the shootings,” Miami Police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat told the Miami Herald. “We’re asking the community to help us. If they know anything related to the shootings, please call Crime Stoppers or Miami Police homicide.”

Anyone with information can call the Miami Police Department’s Homicide Unit at 305-603-6350 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
