Police are investigating two shootings in a Lauderhill neighborhood late Tuesday night that left two men dead and a woman hospitalized.

Lauderhill Police officials said officers responded to the first shooting near the 5200 block of Northwest 18th Place just after 10 p.m. and found one man in a parking lot suffering from a gunshot wound.

The victim was rushed to Broward Health Medical Center, where he later died. Officials have not released his identity.

While police were still investigating the first shooting, a second shooting happened near the intersection of Northwest 56th Avenue and 11th Street just after 11:30 p.m.

When officers arrived they found a man and a woman suffering from gunshot wounds. They were transported to Broward Health Fort Lauderdale, with the male victim dying at the hospital and the female victim in serious condition.
