MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Ravi Kissoom said he heard six to seven gunshots Thursday afternoon in northwest Miami-Dade County’s Pinewood area. After the first shot, he said the rest sounded like rapid fire.

The shooting left a 19-year-old driver injured. He crashed into a store at 11891 NW 12 Ave., according to Detective Christopher Thomas, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department.

"It looked like a bullet pierced the driver’s side quarter panel,” Kissoom said.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel took the man to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. His mother, who did not want to be identified, said her son had been shot in the head.

Officers are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305- 471-8477.
