MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A heavy police presence gathered late Wednesday afternoon in the 400 block of Northwest 108th Street in northwest Miami-Dade in response to what Local 10 News learned was a domestic incident.

A SWAT team and fire rescue were among the units that responded to the active scene.

Most cleared out early Wednesday evening.

Neighbors said there have been previous calls to the home where authorities have responded, but officials have not released further details.

“Police coming everyday. That’s what I see. I don’t know what’s going on,” Jaclyn Louise said.

Louise said she has lived in the area since the 1980s and says this issue is fairly new and a growing problem.

“Every month, every two weeks, problem, problem. That’s too much,” she said.

“When you walk out your door, you have to look both ways because there is so much crime,” another neighbor, Bernice Stringer, told Local 10 News. “So many people walking around. It’s not safe anymore.”

Parts of the road were blocked, preventing traffic from passing through.

No other details were immediately released by police.
