The Fort Lauderdale Police Department is investigating two unrelated shootings Saturday that left two people dead, authorities said.

The first shooting occurred around 11:44 p.m. Friday, when Fort Lauderdale police received a tip from Shotspotter alerting them to a possible incident in the 1600 block of Northwest 13th Court.

When the police arrived at the scene, they found a man with gunshot wounds.

The Fort Lauderdale Fire Department transported the victim to Broward Health Medical Center, where he later died of his injuries, police said.

Hours later, around 6 a.m. Saturday, a 911 call was received reporting a shooting in the 700 block of NW 22nd Road.

Once Fort Lauderdale police arrived on the scene, they found another male victim who was later pronounced dead at the scene by officers from the Fort Lauderdale Fire Department.

The police did not release any information about the causes that led to these incidents or the identity of the victims.

Although detectives do not believe the two incidents are related, the Fort Lauderdale Police Department urges anyone with information regarding the incidents to contact them immediately.
