“I got shot right here with a hollow tip,” said Jean Louis Mardochee, 18, one of three people shot outside of an apartment building at 1298 N.E. 128th Street on Wednesday night.
Also struck was a 35-year-old woman and an 8-year-old boy.
“The car came and it started slowing down and that’s when it took like three seconds and they started shooting,” said Mardochee. “So I started running and I move my arm and it was hit right there.”
The teen says he didn’t realize he was hit at first.
“It took me a minute ’cause my hand’s like this,” he said, holding his arm to his side. “And I started seeing blood going down. I thought I was hit right here (in the side torso).”READ MORE: CDC's New Mask Mandate Encourages People To Get COVID Vaccinations
Pierre Joseph’s 8-year-old grandson, Childer, was shot just feet from his front door. The bullet tore through the boy’s leg as he played with a basketball.
“I just opened the door when I see the kids, he’s crying, crying, crying,” said Joseph. “Got some friends that take care of him and I go call 911.”
North Miami Police spent the rest of the night gathering evidence and processing the scene, though little is known.
Mardochee said he didn’t recognize the shooter’s car — and doesn’t believe he was the target.
“I don’t even know who it is or who car it was,” he said. “I don’t know. I just run.”
Joseph’s grandson moved to the area from Haiti just two months ago and says he felt horrible until he was finally able to speak to the child, who assured him he was okay.MORE NEWS: 'There's More Aggression, More Confrontational Attitude': Miami Beach Police Chief On Increasing Safety, Security
