MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Two people were wounded in a shooting on a busy South Beach street early Monday morning.
The shooting occurred about 12:30 a.m. in the 100 block of Seventh Street, not far from Ocean Drive.
"At 12:30 this morning, one of our officers, who was on active patrol, was flagged down by the victim in this case stating that he had been shot multiple times," Miami Beach police Officer Ernesto Rodriguez told Local 10 News.
The victim was identified by family and friends as Shaquille Harris, 21.
Before he was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, Harris gave police a description of the shooter and the car in which he was riding.
