MIAMI – A 38-year-old man has died after being shot early Friday morning, according to Miami police.

Police went to the scene after getting multiple 911 calls around 3:30 a.m. about shots fired.

When they arrived at 7801 NW Fourth Ave. they found the man unresponsive and with multiple gunshot wounds.

"I'm scared to know a man died right over there," a woman, who lives in the area, said.  

According to police, the victim was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition, but later died.

He was later identified as Jamel Floson. 

A motive isn't known at this time.

"There's a lot that detectives are looking at this very moment to see if, indeed, surveillance cameras from neighboring businesses were able to capture something," Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Fallat said.

Fallat said anyone who may have seen something should come forward.

"We have no information on the gunman," she said. "But those calls of people who may know something are the ones we need to receive. We have nothing to go from at this point, but witnesses who need to come forward."

The roads alongside Northwest Fourth Avenue from 77th to 79th streets were closed as authorities investigated, but have since reopened.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
