Police: 2 shot in Miami
Witness says victim was shot while pushing baby in stroller
A victim in a double shooting in Miami was hit while pushing his 1-year-old baby in a stroller, according to a witness.
It happened near NW 62nd Street and 13th Avenue about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Police have not yet released information about the second victim.
Witness David McNair told Local 10 the first victim was Antonio Lucas, his best friend since middle school. According to McNair, he and Lucas were strolling along NW 62nd Street with their children when the gun went off.
"We was walking and then we stopped to talk to some friends and it just happened out of nowhere," said McNair. "I heard bang, bang, bang, bang. I'm thinking it's firecrackers, so I turn around, I see dudes shooting out of a car."
McNair said he saw the shooter drive off. He said Lucas was shot near his ribs.
According to McNair, the shooting was a case of mistaken identity because he and Lucas don't know the shooter.
Authorities have not yet confirmed McNair's story.
People inside one vehicle had been detained for questioning, police said. NW 62nd Street was shut down in both directions as police investigated Wednesday evening. No other details were released Wednesday night.
Lucas' grandmother said he is recovering in Jackson Memorial Hospital, and is expected to be okay.
“I just talked to my grandson Antonio and he's doing good,” the victim’s grandmother said.
