Police say injuries not life-threatening

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Two men were found suffering from gunshot wounds just blocks apart Wednesday in Miami Gardens, officials said.

Karen Clarke, a spokeswoman for the city of Miami Gardens, said two gunmen approached two men who were sitting inside a car in the 18600 block of Northwest 28th Place just before 9 p.m. One of the men ran from the car and was shot, Clarke said.

Minutes later, another man suffering from a gunshot wound walked into a gas station near Northwest 183rd Street and Northwest 32nd Avenue, Clarke said.

Clarke said it was not clear whether the men were wounded in the same shooting.

Both victims are 21 years old and were taken to Aventura Hospital. Police described their injuries as non-life-threatening.
