MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Several people including a teenager are recovering after being shot while standing outside of a home.

Wednesday evening, police had identified the victims – the youngest being 17-years-old.

While the teen’s name was withheld, officers say Taurean Neal, 22; Jada Miller, 20; Antwon Brown, 19; and Ulysses Britt, 18, were all identified as the victims of the shooting.

Just a day after Christmas, flashing lights and crime tape were up in front of the Northwest Miami Dade home where the shooting happened.

Just after 8 p.m. Tuesday, shots flew at a group of people standing outside.

“Five victims of gunshot wounds,” said Miami Dade Captain Lee Cowart.

Police say all 5 were at a house at Northwest 17th Avenue and Northwest 86th Terrace visiting friends.

Terria Reid was in the house, visiting from college when mayhem broke out in the yard.

“We need somebody to take a stand,“ said Reid, who is attending graduate school and at the same time is a school teacher.

“Fix this. There are young boys. There are young girls that are losing their lives over nonsense,“ Reid said.

All of the victims are expected to survive.

“It’s terrifying, terrifying, these are our kids,” said Jeffrey Humes.

Humes was among the family members holding a vigil at Ryder Trauma Center where all five were taken, including his great-niece Jada Miller.

He identified her as once a star basketball player for Booker T. Washington High School. At least for now, he says his great-niece has a metal rod in her leg and is unable to walk after taking six bullets to the legs.

“Somebody came up in a drive-by and just started shooting. We just want, as a family, for the violence to stop that’s the most important thing and anybody that did this turn yourself in,” said Humes.

Detectives say they are searching for someone, but at least early in their investigation, it didn’t appear to be a drive-by.

Humes left the hospital with few words for whoever took aim at his loved one.

“Stop it. That’s it. Stop it,” he said.

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
