MIAMI – A woman was injured after bullets pierced a Miami house Thursday night.

Miami police said dozens of bullets struck the home at 727 NW 65th St. in Liberty City.

The woman was shot several times. Police said she was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

"Everybody got down on the ground," neighbor Lisa Leonard said. "You don't know where they was shooting at, but we know it was coming from that direction."

A 4-year-old boy and two teenagers, who are the victim's grandchildren, were inside the house at the time, but they were not injured.

"The violence needs to stop," Leonard said. "They need to stop. They need to take a lot of the guns off these streets. That's what they need to do."

Police are still searching for the shooter or shooters.
