Man dead, woman wounded in North Bay Village domestic shooting

NORTH BAY VILLAGE, Fla. – A man is dead and a woman was hospitalized after a shooting in North Bay Village Monday morning, in what officials are calling a “tragic domestic-related incident.”

According to a tweet posted by the city of North Bay Village, just before 8 a.m., police responded to a shots fired call at a unit in an apartment building at 7920 East Drive on Harbor Island.

After arriving at the scene, North Bay Village police officers took a male with a gun into custody and then found the victims inside, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department, which has now taken over the investigation.

Medics took the woman who survived the shooting to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.

A child was inside the home at the time and was unharmed, according to the city. Officials from the Florida Department of Children and Families took the little girl into their custody.

Police didn’t specify the relationship she may have had to anyone involved.

It’s not clear whether the man police took into custody will face any charges.
