(KSL News) West Valley City Police are warning people to be careful following two weekend shootings.

A 51-year-old homeless man was shot three times at a crosswalk at 2495 South Redwood Road. He was taken to the hospital. He told police a dark colored car pulled up with four men inside, shot at him and then took off.

Two hours earlier, a man waiting for a light to change at 3100 South Bangerter Highway was shot in the arm and neck. He didn't see the car or the shooter.

Police aren't sure if the two crimes are related.

Sgt. Chad Evans, West Valley City Police Dept.: "If that's what's happening, if they are random shootings, then people need to be careful, keep their eyes open, be aware of their surroundings, people approaching them, vehicles slowing down, coming up next to them."

Anyone with information is asked to call the West Valley City Police Department.
