MIAMI -

Four people were shot at a get together in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood late Monday, and the two teens who were killed have been identified.

The two teens were identified as Mackenson Pierre, 17, and Yves Sylvester, 15.

The shooting happened just before midnight behind a home at 134 Northeast 68th Terrace.

"I just heard 'Boom, boom, boom,' and the police be coming," said one neighbor.

"Shots just started ringing out. People started running," said Kenia Reyes with Miami police.

One teen died at the scene. Three others were rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where another teen died.

"Yeah, I was scared. Something happened in my neighborhood," said one witness.

Officers continue to search for the gunman, who said to be in his early 20's. Police say they plan to talk to the victims once they recover to get a better description of the gunman.
