7 injured in northwest Miami-Dade shooting

Vehicle stopped in front of home, opened fire, police say

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Seven people were injured Sunday night in a shooting in northwest Miami-Dade County, the Miami-Dade County Fire Rescue said.

On Northwest 14th Avenue and 81st Street, you can see the bullet casings in front of the house where it happened.

Police found seven people with gunshot wounds.

"We're presuming they were outside celebrating," Det. Robin Pinkard said. "They were standing outside of the home when the vehicle stopped and proceeded to open fire on them."

Neighbors -- some close to the action -- said they had to duck down, fearing they could get hit.

"I heard the terror in this young lady's voice, and the horror. It was terrible," one neighbor said. "She was screaming, 'My mom, my momma, my momma.'"

Of the seven shot, three of them are minors -- a 15-year-old and two 17-year-olds.

One of the 17-years-olds, a teenage girl, was seriously wounded.

"I was one of the people who called 911 telling them I heard gunshots," the neighbor said.

Police said they still don't have a motive.
