A death investigation is currently underway in Northwest Miami-Dade after a shooting left 1 person dead and two others injured.
The incident took place near the intersection of Northwest 18th Avenue and 66th Street, shortly after midnight on Friday.
Police said they got a ShotSpotter alert just after 12 a.m. and when they arrived at the scene, they found two men suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
“This is almost every day around here,” one man said. “I mean, this is madness.”
One man was pronounced dead on the scene. The second man was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.
The third victim arrived at North Shore Hospital but was then transferred to JMH in critical condition.
“We grew up together, me and his brother,” said Frank Gaines, a friend of the deceased victim. “All he did was work and provide for his family, and a lot of times, it’s the wrong time, wrong place or people just don’t care.
Gaines did not want to share his friend’s name out of respect for family members.
“P-R-A-Y. That’s it. I’m living this, I’m here,” one man said.
“Somehow, someway, we have to put an end to this,” Gaines said. “It’s too much.”
Detectives have been in and out of a corner store in the area, which appears to be the focus of the investigation.
The owner, however, told 7News that the shooting did not happen inside the store.
The victim’s body has since been removed from the scene by the medical examiner.
