WASHINGTON - Two people died and four were injured during two separate shootings in Northwest Washington during the Fourth of July holiday.

D.C. police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump says the first shooting Wednesday night in the Fort Totten neighborhood killed a 19-year-old male and injured three other males. That shooting took place as a group was watching fireworks around 8 p.m. Police identified the 19-year-old as Crevontai Key of Northeast Washington.

Police later responded to a shooting in the 600 block of Morton Street about 2 a.m. Thursday. Two men were shot. One man who was shot in the face later died.

No information about suspects was available in either shooting.
