Students at Temple University were told to use caution after at least two shootings happened near the North Philadelphia campus overnight, leaving a teenager dead and at least two men hurt.

The shootings took place around 3 a.m. Monday at N 16th Street and Cecil B Moore Avenue and 16th Street and Montgomery Avenue, Philadelphia police said.

The shootings are believed to involve separate gunmen, but believed to be connected, police said.

Two people were shot at 16th and Montgomery, police said. Down the block at Cecil B Moore, another person was shot. A young woman, believed to be around 18, died after being shot in the head. A 28-year-old man shot in the arm and a 20-year-old man shot in the chest were listed in stable condition at the hospital.

The scenes are right off Temple's campus, near where some students live. Temple tweeted out an alert telling students about the shooting asking them to "use caution" and "avoid the area."

As an NBC10 news crew pulled up to the scene, you could see a lot of young people out in the street as police started their investigation.

Investigators hope surveillance video helps them track down the shooters.
