3 shot after man hiding behind dumpster seen on video pulling out long gun

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami-Dade police are investigating a shooting that occurred Tuesday afternoon.

According to authorities, the shooting was reported just before 1 p.m. in the area of Northwest 15th Avenue and 65th Street.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials confirmed that crews transported three adults to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center.

All of the victims are expected to survive, Miami-Dade Police Department Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said.

Police said the shooting happened after several people hanging out of the windows of a dark-colored SUV opened fire on a crowd of people standing on the corner of the street.

Surveillance video just obtained by Local 10 News captured the shooting as it happened.

Wednesday noon report:

It shows a man with a white T-shirt and a red hat hiding behind a dumpster when he pulls a long gun from a black bag. As it appears shots are first fired at him, he returned fire before running off.

Moments later, a black SUV crashes into that dumpster after several passengers jump from the vehicle.

Officers swarmed the area and blocked off Northwest 18th Avenue as they searched for the shooter.

While police have yet to say if any arrests have been made, a Local 10 News crew did spot one man in the back of a marked police cruiser and another in handcuffs, speaking with detectives, but there still no word on if they will be charged.

The search for the SUV driver continued.

One of the victims declined to speak on camera after leaving the hospital Wednesday.

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