2 dead, 7-year-old boy injured in Miami shooting

Police say boy expected to survive

MIAMI – Two people were killed and a 7-year-old boy was injured Saturday afternoon in a shooting in Miami.

Miami police said they received numerous 911 calls about shots fired at a home on Northwest Second Court.

Police said officers arrived and found three people suffering from gunshot wounds. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the man later died at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The boy was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are investigating whether the shooting was domestic-related.

"I cannot really get into too much detail because right now we don't know whether or not this is a domestic situation," Officer Rene Pimentel said.
