Police: Teen Shot In Head During Heat Game Celebrations
MIRAMAR (CBS4) – Miramar Police are searching for the person who opened fire Thursday night after the Miami Heat won the NBA Finals.
According to CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald, someone began shooting in celebration when the game ended. One of the bullets struck a 15 year old boy in the head inside his home on the 2100 block of Sherman Circle North.
