Two men are in serious condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center after they were found shot in separate locations in northeast Miami-Dade Wednesday night, police said.
Miami Police officers responded to 230 Northeast 55th Terrace at about 7 p.m. after getting 911 calls about a male who had been shot, police said.
Once police arrived, they found the young male victim lying on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds in front of an apartment complex, police said.
At the same time, police received calls that a man had been shot at 125 Northeast 56th St. That’s where officers saw a man had also suffered gunshot wounds, police said.
One man was shot in the head, and the other was shot in the torso, police said. Miami Fire Rescue took both victims to Ryder Trauma Center.
It was unknown if the shootings were related, and whether they took place in just one location, police said.
Police also said the motive was unclear, but they continue to investigate.
