A loud explosion was heard in the city at about 10:29am, a LIGA.net correspondent said, followed by an air raid siren in the Dnipro region.
Local social media groups reported a column of smoke over the city after the explosion.
The Russian missile hit a medical institution and a vet clinic nearby, Serhii Lysak, the head of the Dnipro regional military administration, later said.
By now, 23 people are confirmed to have been wounded in the attack, with two people dead. One of them, a 68-year-old man, was passing by the institution when the missile hit, and the other was found under the rubble.
Earlier, overnight on Friday, Russia also attacked Dnipro, dealing serious damage to a transport company and leaving one person wounded.
