DETROIT (WWJ) -- An investigation is underway after a pair of drive-by shootings in Detroit Saturday that saw one man killed, and four others injured.

Detroit police say around 11:30 a.m. Saturday, three men were sitting inside a car on Manor -- near Fenkell Avenue and Meyers Road on the city's west side -- when another car pulled up and someone inside opened fire.

Authorities say a man is his 20s was shot and killed, while two others inside the vehicle were struck and taken to the hospital, where they were listed in temporary serious condition. Police did not release any of the victims' names, but said they were all in their mid-20s.

Police have not released a description of the suspect or the vehicle they were riding in.

A possible motive for the shooting was not immediately clear.

Later that same day in an unrelated incident, police say two teenagers were injured in another drive-by shooting on the city's east side. Police say the teens were in a car on Stotter street -- near 8 Mile Road and Van Dyke Avenue -- around 6:30 p.m. when someone in a silver Dodge Durango opened fire, striking a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old.

The victims were listed in temporary serious condition, while the driver of the car they were in was uninjured and drove them to a hospital.

Police are still investigating both incidents.
