Police are investigating a double shooting that took place in Northwest Miami-Dade Friday night.

Officers responded to two males suffering from gunshot wounds around 11:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of Northwest 16th Avenue.

One of the victims was pronounced dead at the scene. The other died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

"I have three children myself and it's sad," said Elizabeth Stephens, a neighbor who heard gunshots and called police.

No further information was immediately known. The identities of the victims have not been released.

This was the second double-homicide to be investigated by police in the last two weeks in Northwest Miami-Dade.

On February 5th, two adults were shot and killed near Lincoln Fields Apartments.

The incidents took place within a mile of each other.

Community members spoke out against the violence at a prayer vigil Thursday night.

"Enough is enough," said activist Crystal Foster. "We are tired of our children killing our children. This is not normal. If you see something, please say something, because it could happen to you."
