A rash of shootings are under investigation in Cleveland after a violent weekend.

According to police at least a dozen people were injured, including five juveniles.

A seven-year-old is recovering after being shot in the hand during a drive-by shooting Friday night. And later that evening, a man was shot in a separate incident. 

On Saturday morning, a second man was shot.

Also Saturday morning a 9-year-old girl and her 2-year-old brother were shot inside a home. Their conditions are listed as critical. Police have arrested the victims' uncle, Lindsey Curry, and charged him with obstruction.

Saturday afternoon an unidentified man walked into a barbershop in the 5900 block of Fleet and shot a customer in the leg. A few hours after that, a 16-year-old boy was shot twice -- he was hit once in the arm and knee. Police also say a 13-year-old boy was shot around 9 p.m. in a drive-by shooting near West 89th and Detroit Ave.

Other shootings Saturday night and into Sunday morning left three more adults injured. 

Police are searching for suspects in nearly all of the shootings. If you have any information give them a call.
