MIAMI SHORES, Fla. – The Miami Shores and Miami-Dade Police Departments responded to the scene of a fatal shooting that occurred overnight.
According to Miami Shores police, the shooting occurred in the area of North Miami Avenue and 104th Street.
Local 10 News had a crew at the scene early Thursday morning as authorities continued their investigation. A white Nissan sedan had a yellow tarp covering part of it, while a BMW SUV that was parked right next to it had at least one bullet hole in the window.
Neighbors living near the shooting scene told Local 10 News reporter Saira Anwer that they were awakened by multiple gunshots shortly before 2 a.m.
Miami-Dade police spokesman Angel Rodriguez confirmed that a woman had been fatally shot inside the Nissan. She was later identified by police as Precious Anne Paraison, 20, who recently had a baby.
Paraison’s father and brother arrived to the crime scene to hear the devastating news from officers and were driven away by police.
Her brother told Local 10 that she did not live at the location she was killed, saying she lived 50 blocks away. He believes this may have been some kind of setup.
