14 people shot in Miami-Dade County over weekend

Police say 4 shootings are not connected

MIAMI – A violent weekend in Miami-Dade County ended with 14 people shot in four different shooting incidents, authorities said. 

The first shooting was reported Saturday in the city of Miami. Police said Jamal Pieze, 16, was walking on Northwest 39th Street and Northwest 16th Avenue when he was shot by two other teens.

One of the bullets hit a passing car driven by Ronald Galindo, 30, and shattered his window. Galindo was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital to be treated.

Pieze survived the shooting and was also taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he remains in stable condition.  

Another shooting was reported Saturday at Northwest 95th Terrace and 20th Avenue. Three people were injured. 

Five people standing outside a corner store at Southwest 216th Street and 120th Avenue were shot Saturday night. Two of the victims were airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition. The other three were taken to a hospital in Kendall, where Shannon Raheem, 23, died. 

Police are looking for a four-door, newer model silver car with tinted windows in connection with the southwest Miami-Dade County shooting. Police said the car is missing a passenger side rear-view mirror. 

The most recent shooting was reported Sunday night in northeast Miami-Dade County. Four people were shot just before 6 p.m. outside an apartment building at Northeast 167th Street and Sixth Avenue. Two people were taken to Aventura Hospital in stable condition, and two others were treated at the scene and released.

The victims in that shooting were identified as Sabrina Edden, 19, James Lacroix, 43, Stanley Maignant, 25, and Valerie Pierre, 25.

Detectives believe it was a drive-by shooting, but they do not know a motive. They said a dark-colored vehicle was driven by the culprits, but no other description was given.

Anyone with information about any of the shootings is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
