Two people were killed and two more were critically hurt early Sunday in a drive-by shooting in Little Haiti

Two people were killed and two more were critically hurt early Sunday in a drive-by shooting in Little Haiti, hours after a similar incident in Liberty City.

For a second day in a row, Miami police found themselves investigating a drive-by shooting with at least one teenage victim.

Early Sunday, police responded to a drive-by attack in Little Haiti that left two men dead and two others in critical condition. It followed a Saturday drive-by in Liberty City that left a 15-year-old boy in critical condition.

The crimes were separated by less two miles.

In Sunday’s incident, officers received a call about of shots being fired shortly after 12:30 a.m. in the area of Northwest 54th Street and Fifth Avenue, police said. When officers and paramedics arrived, they found four victims who had been shot multiple times.

Two men died at the scene. Two others, a man and a woman, were in critical condition Sunday at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, said Detective Willie Moreno, a police spokesman.

The victims were between the ages of 17 and their 20s, Moreno said.

Sunday afternoon, family members of the two who survived gathered at Jackson, but said saying they were too upset to talk. At the corner where the shooting took place, most signs of the violence were gone except for a few leftover strands of yellow police tape strewn in the grass.

Detectives said they were looking for at least two people who were seen opening fire on the victims out of a dark-colored, midsize vehicle. The vehicle sped away westbound on 54th Street.

“They were brazen. They are considered extremely dangerous,” Moreno said. of the shooters. “We need to bring them to justice.”

Rick Bawa, owner of the Bawa Market at 485 NW 54 St., said he had to rent a pressure cleaner to wash away the remnants of the blood outside his store.

“Yeah, I knew every one of them,” he said of the victims. “They were old customers here. They were young. They were all thuggish.”

The victims’ names were not released Sunday. , because all of their families had not been notified.

Police did not release the victims’ names Sunday.

On Saturday, the 15-year-old was walking home in the 1400 block of Northwest 60th Street when three men in ski masks pulled alongside him in a white Nissan and opened fire, police said. The teen was hit multiple times. He was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
