NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Police swarmed a South Florida neighborhood as an investigation into a pair of shootings that injured five people unfolded.

Officers were seen on Northwest 10th Avenue and 131st Street in North Miami after they responded to a call about gunshots in the neighborhood, Wednesday night.

Just moments before, police officers received an initial call where they responded to an area nearby.

According to 911 dispatchers, Miami-Dade Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the area of Northwest Seventh Avenue and 95th Street, around 11:30 p.m., Wednesday.

Officials said one woman suffered two gunshot wounds to the leg and was taken to Ryder Trauma Center.

Three people were shot in their lower extremities at the other crime scene, but it is unclear if these two incidents are related; those people were also taken to local hospitals.

7News was able to talk to a woman who heard the shots in the area.

“[I] heard maybe like 20 to 30 bullets go off,” said the woman. “After about 10 minutes, the police showed up, and they just blocked it off. They started taking people to the hospital. It was crazy.”

The crime scene was cleared by Thursday morning.
