Danny Alvarez, 17, and 46-year-old Victor V. Carter died Saturday morning from gunshot wounds at two separate shootings in Miami.

Around 1 a.m. Saturday, two separate shootings claimed two lives in Miami.

Miami police found a dead man with a gunshot wound to the head near the 1400 block of Northwest 45th Street. He was later identified as 46-year-old Victor V. Carter. Police spokesperson Kenia Fallat said the motive and the identity of the shooter (or shooters) are unknown.

On the second scene, in the area of Southwest 31st Avenue and Fourth Street, police didn’t find a victim. But shortly after, Fallat said, a 17-year-old boy with a gunshot wound in his back showed up at the Coral Gables hospital. Danny Alvarez died of his wounds.

“At this time the motive is unclear,” Fallat said.

Anyone with information about the shooting should call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
