2 men taken to hospital after Miami shooting, another shows up on his own, police say

MIAMI, Fla. – A shooter is still on the run a day after a triple shooting happened in broad daylight Sunday in a Miami neighborhood.

According to police, they responded to a call of a man shot at N.W. 1st Place and 14th street, just after 2:40 p.m. When they arrived, there were two victims on the scene.

“They did, in fact, locate two males who appeared to have been suffering from gunshot wounds,” Officer Kiara Delva, of the Miami Police Department, said.

The two men were transported by Miami Fire Rescue to Jackson Memorial Hospital. At some point, a third man showed up at the hospital, according to police.

“We later learned that a third man arrived at Jackson Memorial Hospital himself and that he, too, had gunshot wounds,” Delva said.

All three were at Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition.

Back at the scene, investigators were taking pictures and putting down evidence markers. They were also combing the area for any clues.

“Our detectives are continuing their investigation and our forensic team is on scene looking for evidence and any identifying marks that can help solve this case,” Delva said.

But police said they cannot solve the case alone and need to hear from witnesses.

“Please, the smallest tip can help,” Delva said.

If you know anything about this shooting, call Miami Police Department’s assault unit at (305) 603-6940, email: assaults@miami-police.org, or Miami Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS(8477).
