Woman wounded in shooting outside Hialeah dental office
Victim flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital, listed in stable condition
HIALEAH, Fla. – A woman was wounded in a shooting outside her dental office Tuesday morning in Hialeah.
Crime scene investigators were focused on the stairwell leading to the dental office on East 41st Street.
Hialeah police Lt. Eddie Rodriguez said the woman was shot and flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where she was listed in stable condition.
Pablo Sanchez told Local 10 News reporter Hatzel Vela that the victim is his wife, Carmen Ramirez. State records show Ramirez owns the dental office.

"Detectives are working diligently following very promising leads at this time," Rodriguez said.
