A second fatal shooting was reported shortly after midnight on the 4700 block of Crestview Avenue in the SoBro area around 11:46 p.m. 

Police said the victim was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. A witness told police they heard popping noises coming from inside a SUV. Officials say they are investigating the shooting as homicide, but could not give any information on suspects.

Earlier in the night, police were called to a shooting at around 9:20 p.m. near the intersection of 38th Street and Post Road. They eventually found two victims suffering gunshot wounds at a 7-11 near Pendleton Pike and Post Road, but no evidence of a shooting at the original location.

One of the victims was reportedly in critical condition.
