SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – Police are investigating a shooting that broke out in Southwest Miami-Dade.
Several people were hurt after shots were fired outside of an apartment complex called Perrine Rainbow located on Southwest 173rd Terrace and Homestead Avenue, Wednesday.
Police said this happened around 12:40 a.m. when they got a ShotSpotter call.
Police said a drive-by shooter opened fire and injured five people gathered outside of the apartments.
Larry King, a neighbor who walked at a nearby convenience store, saw the incident unravel and rushed over to help.
“I just heard a lot of gunshots,” said King. “I just rode through going to the store and, you know, my neighbors got shot all up. It’s tragic. The guns need to stop. Innocent people get shot.”
Three women and two men were transported to Jackson South Hospital.
Investigators flooded the area and taped off the scene where they laid out dozens of evidence markers where bullet casings were left behind.
The area has since been cleared once police processed the crime scene.
Detective Luis Sierra said they believe the incident was a drive-by shooting and are now looking for two possible suspects.
“Our victims are stable and South District detectives have reason to believe that this was a drive-by shooting,” said Sierra. “Based on the information they’ve gathered they are looking for a dark-colored sedan [and] they have reason to believe it was one driver and one shooter.”
Their injuries are unknown but officials said they are stable.
