Detroit police are investigating after two men in their 20s were dumped out of vehicles after being fatally shot Tuesday afternoon.

The incidents took place within a half-hour of each another, in neighboring precincts on the city's west side.

Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman, said the first incident took place about 4:30 p.m. in the area of Chalfonte and the southbound Southfield Freeway Service Drive. The area is south of Fenkell and in the 8th precinct.

Witnesses report seeing the occupants of a gold vehicle, possibly a Chevy Monte Carlo, dump a shooting victim out of the car. The man had been shot in his head, eye and neck. 

Medics arrived and transported the man to Sinai-Grace Hospital, but he was dead on arrival. Police believe the man to be in his 20s, but he's unidentified at the moment.

Around 30 minutes later, a male shooting victim, 22, was dropped off at Sinai-Grace Hospital, on the 6000 block of West Outer Drive, in the 12th precinct. Witnesses described the vehicle as being silver or gold, possibly a Chrysler 300. 

The victim did not survive his injuries, and the occupants of the silver or gold vehicle drove away.

Police are investigating both men's deaths.
