MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Gardens Police detectives are gathering clues and trying to unravel the mystery of who shot a 51-year-old woman in the front yard of a home.

CBS4 cameras rolled at Jackson Memorial Hospital as the victim arrived there Tuesday night.

CBS4’s Carey Codd was told that she was found in the front yard of a home with a gunshot wound to her body and a bullet possibly grazed her head as well.

Police said the woman, who has not been identified, is in good condition.

The scene unfolded at a home near 27th avenue and 173th Street.

Detectives combed the scene for clues.

Codd saw more than a dozen evidence markers on the ground.

People who live nearby said that the woman who resides in the home has lived there a long time and is a wonderful neighbor and a terrific person. They cannot understand why anyone would want to shoot her.

At this point, police have released few details and nothing concerning a possible motive.

If you can help detectives sort all of this out, contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
