Woman shot while sitting inside vehicle in northwest Miami-Dade
Victim driven to gas station, then taken to hospital in critical condition
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A woman was shot while sitting inside a vehicle in a northwest Miami-Dade County apartment complex, police said.
The shooting occurred early Tuesday at the apartment complex on Northwest 84th Street near Northwest Fourth Avenue.
Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said the victim was driven to a Chevron gas station on Northwest Sixth Avenue in Miami. She was later taken by paramedics to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.
Manotte Joseph said she woke up to the sound of gunshots about 3 a.m.
Yellow police markers could be seen on the ground in the parking lot of the apartment complex. There were also three vehicles -- a gray Toyota Camry, a black Nissan Versa and a gray Nissan Armada -- with visible bullet holes.
Raphael Jean, who was visiting the apartment complex, said this isn't the first time there's been a shooting in the neighborhood.
"About two or three weeks ago, it was chaos," Jean said. "It was very horrible."
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
