United States: Multiple people wounded in a ‘drive-by’ shooting in Miami

At least seven people were wounded during a shooting on Friday night in Miami, police said.

One of the victims has died, Miami Herald reported.

According to Officer Kiara Delva, Miami police got a call just before midnight Friday of a shooting.




When police arrived, they found several people there with gunshot wounds. Some of the victims got themselves to area hospitals, according to Miami police.

Of the seven shooting victims, one went to the University of Miami Hospital and the other six are at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Delva said.

Police found at least two different calibre casings during their investigation, and are still looking for suspects.



Fliers announced a “Caribbean party at an events planning space” in the area for Friday night. The officer said video footage “looks like a warzone.”

The shooting victims’ identities haven’t been released.

A nearby business owner said he has bullet holes in his fence.

Witnesses told WSVN that it appeared to be a drive-by shooting and that more than 60 shots were heard.

“I remember it was just the gun and smoke coming out, like, the back window, because he was just in the back of the car,” a witness told the station.
