MIRAMAR, Fla. - A 17-year-old boy was found shot to death in a Miramar neighborhood early Wednesday.

Miramar police spokeswoman Tania Rues said officers were dispatched to the 6000 block of Southwest 33rd Street after someone called 911 to report hearing gunshots and seeing the teenager lying face down on the ground.

Paramedics arrived and pronounced the teen dead at the scene.

The victim was later identified as Kumasi Kareem.

"From what we're gathering, from what the family has told us as well, he was a pretty good kid," Rues said. "So, unfortunately, we don't have a motive at present time as to why anyone would want him dead." 

No other information was immediately available.

Anyone with information was asked to call Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
