Police are investigating two shootings that happened within two miles of each other early Sunday in southwest Miami-Dade in the same area where four teens where shot on Friday.

These two shootings happened about three minutes driving distance from each other, with one of them taking place near Southwest 113th Avenue and Southwest 231st Lane.

Witnesses said they heard at least ten shots at around 12:30 a.m. and a car speeding off.

“I heard like firecrackers. Next thing you know, they were running out the neighborhood," said a witness who didn't want to be identified. "I didn’t bother looking outside because you never know what's going on outside.”

Video showed detectives at the scene with evidence markers by bullets on the street. One of those bullets went through a neighbor’s backyard fence, neighbors said.

Police were also on the scene near Southwest 222nd Street and 116th Avenue after reported gunshots.

Witnesses told NBC 6 a man was shot and taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's trauma center.

The shootings happened after four teens were shot at the Cutler Manor Apartments in the middle of the day Friday.

Police haven't said if the shootings are connected but all remain under investigation.

This is an ongoing investigation. Check back with NBC 6 for updates.
