Teenager hospitalized after being shot in Miami, police say

Police: Shooting happened on Northwest 64th Street

MIAMI - A teenager is recovering Saturday after being shot in Miami, police said.

Miami police are investigating the shooting Saturday at 580 N.W. 64th St.

Police said officers responded to a call at 12:45 p.m. and found the victim, described as a male in his late teens, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Miami Fire Rescue personnel took the wounded teen to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in extremely serious condition, police said.

Family members identified the victim as Deion Hudson, 17.

Family members said Hudson got into a fight outside an apartment building on Northwest 64th Street. Loved ones said Hudson was shot in the neck.

Crime scene investigators set up a perimeter, searching for the shooter or shooters who fled. Detectives still don't have a motive.

"We have very little information as to what stems behind the shooting," said officer Kenia Fallat with Miami police.

Family members spoke to Local 10 News outside a hospital as the teen was rushed into surgery. They're begging witnesses to come forward and call police.

"It could've been your brother, your cousin, your uncle," Desiree Hudson said. "If you know anything, just come clean."
