Police said that shortly after that, North Shore Medical Center advised that three gunshot victims arrived at its emergency room as well.

They were all rushed to Ryder Trauma Center by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue in critical but stable condition, according to authorities.

Police said it was determined that all five victims were involved in the shooting that occurred at the original scene that officers responded to.

According to Miami-Dade police, initial investigations revealed there was some kind of party or gathering at the residence where the shooting took place.

A source close to the investigation told Local 10 News that it seems like the people were congregated outside when a car came by and someone inside started shooting.

Our cameras captured several bullet holes in cars parked in front of the home where neighbors tell us this happened.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
