UPDATE: 11:40 a.m. — Delray Beach Police just released this statement:

Delray Beach police are investigating two unrelated shootings that happened Saturday night. At 8 p.m., a man was shot in a car near the 1500-block of SW 3rd Court. He was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The involved parties know each other and the shooting appears to have stemmed from an argument earlier in the day.

At 11 p.m., three men were shot near the Tri-Rail Station at 345 S. Congress Avenue. The victims agreed to meet several people at the location. While meeting, an altercation ensued, which led to the shooting. Two of the victims have non-life threatening injuries. The third victim is in critical condition. Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call Det. Anthony Sala at 561-243-7867. You can remain anonymous.

UPDATE: 8:11 a.m. Sunday, October 16, 2022: It now appears that 3 people were shot in this incident, none fatally. A second person was apparently shot near the original scene, and a third person was located near the Tri-Rail station on Congress. We are awaiting official information. Check back for details.

DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Two people were reportedly shot around 8 p.m. Saturday in the 100 block of SW 12th Avenue in Delray Beach, but rescuers arriving on the scene determined that one person was shot in the face and a second person suffered a heart problem — possibly a stroke.

Multiple Delray Beach fire rescue units were called to the scene believing that two people had been shot in the home. Police secured the area and then permitted fire rescue workers inside.

They apparently learned that while one person was shot, the second victim suffered what one source described as a “stroke.” Both people were transported to Delray Medical Center’s trauma unit. Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the gunshot victim is a teen and the bullet entered his face. There was no immediate search for a suspect.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
