MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. - A 16-year-old boy is in stable condition after he was shot multiple times Sunday in Miami Gardens.

The shooting was reported Sunday evening near the victim's home in the 2400 block of Northwest 171st Terrace.

Miami Gardens police identified the victim Monday as Michael Green. Police said he was outside his home when he was shot.

Maj. Ralph Suarez said authorities are searching for at least three people who got away in a red pickup truck that had no license plate.

Green was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. He is expected to recover from his injuries.
