NORTH MIAMI, Fla. – A shooting was reported Thursday morning in a North Miami neighborhood just days after two people opened fire a block away.

The shooting occurred along Northwest 128th Street and Seventh Avenue.

A Local 10 News crew was at the scene after officers arrived and spotted several shell casings on the ground.

Residents in the area said two homes were shot up overnight.

One of those residents was Wilfredo Milena, who lives across the street from the two homes that were shot up just after midnight.

“I was asleep at the moment, then I go now to the floor. I’ve never seen that before here,” he said.

A woman who lives at one of the homes told Local 10 News that no one was shot, but that they are shaken up by the incident.

The area is, unfortunately, no stranger to gun violence.

On Monday night, surveillance video captured two men jumping out of a white car and opening fire.

They quickly hopped back into the sedan and the driver pulls off with the two shooters inside.

Police confirmed that two people were shot in that incident and were rushed to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

A motive for the shooting remains unclear.

And around noon Thursday, police responded to an area near Linda Lentin K-8 Center after getting reports that dozens of shots were fired. The school was briefly placed on lockdown, and Sky 10 flew overhead as three people were detained.

Anyone with further information about the incidents is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
