MIAMI (CBSMiami) — “God is good, God is good. Always good.”
In the middle of the street with a bullet in his chest, a young man’s friends could do nothing but offer words of encouragement while the three of them waited for help.
“We got robbed,” said one of them as the shock of the situation still rattled through their minds.
They were just out for a night of fun. “The party hadn’t even started.”
The guys were headed to a club in Wynwood. They parked in an area near N.W. 26th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenue.
That’s when one of them forgot something in the car. The group began to walk back to their car when they suddenly had guns pointed at them.
“It was three males that walked up to us,” one of the victims explained. “All three of them had weapons. One, you know, told us to get on the ground. I ran off. Two shots rang off. My boy got hit.”
He was struck in the chest.
That man’s grandfather said his grandson is doing fine and in stable condition. He said, thankfully, the bullet didn’t hit any major organs.
He was taken to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
The armed attackers took off running after the shooting. Police are now looking for them.
