MIAMI (CBSMiami) – One man is dead, a second injured in a shooting in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood.

Police said a man walked into Churchill’s Pub near 55th Street and NE 2nd Avenue around 9:30 p.m. Sunday looking for help after he had been shot. He was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

“Officers canvassed the area and they located a 2nd victim, the victim was in a vehicle off of NE 2nd Avenue and 57th street,” said Delva.

The man inside the car was dead, he had been shot.

“This was possibly someone’s father, someone’s brother, someone’s son,” said Delva.

Police believe the shootings are connected that both victims were in the same car. Beyond that, they are looking for answers.

Delva told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench that police do not have a motive and they do not have a description to release of the shooter.

“We’re asking the community, please if you saw or heard anything that took place around his time you’re urged to contact us with more information, we have very little to go on and we want the community to know that we cannot do this alone,” said Delva.

Miami Police are scouring the neighborhood for surveillance tape.

Employees of one nearby business said they had turned over their surveillance tape to Miami Police and were not allowing the media to look at what was seen.

Delva said the condition of the victim at Jackson Memorial Hospital had stabilized.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477).

There’s a reward of up to $3,000.
