LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas Police said four people were injured in two different shootings on Wednesday night.

According to department spokesman Officer Eric Leavitt, detectives were investigating to see if the two shootings were related due to their proximity.

At 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 20, officers responded to the 100 block of Honey Locust Drive, near Washburn Road and North 5th Street, where two people were shot.

They were both being treated for non life-threatening injuries. Both victims were men of unknown ages and details of the shooting were not yet available.

Two hours later, officers responded to the Glenbrook Terrace apartments off Rome Boulevard and North McCarran Street for a shooting. There, Leavitt said an 14-year-old girl was shot in the head and a male of unknown age was shot in the ankle.

The woman was in critical condition. Both were taken to nearby hospitals.

No suspect information was immediately available. Both scenes were active on Wednesday night.

This story has been updated to reflect the age of a victim as 14, not 18. This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

I really didn’t understand why officers at the crime scene of commerce and Washburn shooting had integrated my husband when we came outside to see what happened , multiple neighbors were outside and as soon as they see two black couples they rushed out the car , put a gun to my husbands head and He cooperated completely but the officers didn’t care if he did they just kept on integrating him like he was the shooter , they kept asking him the same question after he answered “do you have a gun “ multiple times as if they wanted to cause a seen and put the crime on him , them doing that , they wasted so much time on finding the real on the loose killer . But I’m my eyes the police isn’t here to help they just want to blame the next African American person . They handled him very ruff before I came outside but if I didn’t they would’ve killed him , and I believe Officer Eric Leavitt was involved and he surely didn’t do his job right .
