MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Police are investigating the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy in southwest Miami-Dade County. 

Miami-Dade police said it happened late Saturday during a gathering at a home on Southwest 132nd Avenue near Quail Roost Drive.

Police said during the party, a car pulled up and opened fire at the house.

The shooter then ran towards a waiting car, police said.

At least of the bullets struck a neighbor's SUV. 

A woman who lives next door said she opened the door to her home and saw "these kids running." She said they yelled for her to call the police, saying someone had been shot.

"It hit home," she told Local 10 News. "I was literally crying because I have kids, too, you know, and my kids are about that age, 12, 13, you know."

Anyone with information is urged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
