Another man shot in arm at house party

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A man is dead and two other people, including a teenager, have been wounded in a shooting in northwest Miami-Dade County.

The triple shooting happened about 11 p.m. Sunday during a house party on Northwest 116th Street near Northwest Seventh Avenue.

"Three individuals -- two black males and a Hispanic male -- approached the residence on foot and opened fire," Miami-Dade police Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.

Zabaleta said a 20-year-old man was killed, a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm and a 13-year-old boy was shot in the head while in a bedroom.

The boy was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

"Instead of sitting in a classroom he's now sitting in an ICU room, trying to fight for his life," Zabaleta said.

The man who was shot in the arm was treated and released from the hospital.

Police are still searching for the shooters.

A motive was not immediately known.
