It happened near NW 15th Avenue and NW 70th Street around 6:30 p.m.
“We do need the community’s assistance in identifying the suspect or suspects involved,” Miami Police spokesperson Kiara Delva said.
The shooting happened near a church, a bus stop, apartments, and businesses. For hours, police closed off the intersection so forensics investigators could take pictures and collect evidence. There were evidence markers on a car and there was a bicycle inside the crime scene.
Detectives are leaning on store managers for help piece everything together.
“Our detectives are on the scene looking for any surveillance video or any witnesses that possibly saw what transpired,” Delva said.READ MORE: Lines Of Mourners Pay Their Respects Sunday For Gabby Petito

Sunday night’s shooting was blocks away from a deadly shooting in Liberty City early Friday morning. Detectives told us two people were killed and another was injured at an apartment complex near NW 8th Avenue and NW 70th Street. It’s unclear if both are connected.
Police believe neighbors can help find those answers.
