2 dead, 1 wounded in Miami shooting

Male, female killed; third victim taken to hospital

MIAMI – Two people were killed and a third was wounded in an early-morning shooting in Miami.

Miami police Officer Kiara Delva said police were called to a shooting shortly before 12:30 a.m. Friday near Northwest 70th Street and Northwest Eighth Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found three victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Two of them, a male and female victim, were pronounced dead.

The other female was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center. Her condition was not immediately known.

"Everyone should be angry," Miami police Chief Jorge Colina said. "People on that block should be angry."

A view from Sky 10 showed yellow tarps covering the bodies and dozens of police markers scattered about the courtyard.

"We need people to be angry and to come out and say, 'This is not acceptable in my neighborhood and I am going to turn to the police to help us stop this,'" Colina said.

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