OPA-LOCKA (CBSMiami) – Three people were shot in Opa-locka Saturday night and the suspects are still on the loose.

Police say those people were shot at with a high-powered rifle near Northwest 135th Street and Northwest 31st Avenue.

The shooting took place at approximately 9:30 p.m. Saturday night.

Two of the victims were transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, one by helicopter.

The third victim was taken to a nearby hospital in an ambulance.

As officers arrived on scene, the gunman with an AK-47 continued to fire away.

“One of the supervisors arrived on scene,” said Chief James Dobson with Opa-locka Police. “He actually witnessed one of the victims running towards him and he saw the subject actually firing his high-powered weapon towards the direction of the officer and the other victim. Once he saw the officer, he retreated.”
