Three people were shot, two of them fatally, in two incidents Saturday and Sunday.

Two men were in a vehicle near West 4th and South Boylston streets in Westlake about 2 a.m. Sunday when someone walked up to their car and shot both in the torso, police said. Both men, who appeared to be in their 20s, were taken to a hospital where one later died, police said. Coroner's officials said he had not been identified.

Saturday afternoon, Keith Dwayne Moore, 20, was shot and killed in the 1600 block of 55th Street near Central and Alameda, authorities said. Moore was riding his bicycle on the street when he was confronted by a man on foot who shot him several times and fled, police said.
