Detectives review surveillance video after U.S. 1 shooting in Miami

A teenage girl asked police for help after a roadway shooting on U.S. 1 in Miami.

MIAMI – Detectives are reviewing surveillance video as they search for the suspects of a roadway shooting on Sunday in Miami.

The shooting was at about 2:30 a.m., along U.S. 1, near Southwest 22nd Avenue, according to the Miami Police Department.

Officer Kenia Fallat, a spokeswoman for the department, said the target was a Nissan Altima with six people inside. Five were injured.

“The victims’ ages are from 17 and into the early 20s,” Fallat said during a news conference.

The driver of the Nissan dropped off a teenage girl who was injured after the shooting and she called 911 to ask for help, Fallat said. Miami Fire Rescue personnel took her to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.

“We received a call from West Memorial Hospital that several victims had driven themselves to the hospital and they had been shot,” Fallat said adding, “Fortunately enough, these young adults are going to survive, but this could have been a completely different story.”

Detectives are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call Miami-Dade County Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
