Images showed several marked police units with officers standing behind their vehicles with guns drawn, including long guns.

Units had positioned themselves on both sides of the train tracks.

A special response team was also at the scene where police were interviewing several witnesses.

Miami Police Commander Freddie Cruz said to people who may have been in the area, “If you saw something, if you know something, please come forward and call 911.”

Police had closed off the area to vehicular traffic, as they had set up a perimeter.

Investigators have not said if someone was captured or if they know who’s responsible.

“I don’t think the person is in the area anymore, I think it’s just an isolated incident. I think it’ll be back to normal. This is a nice area, tourists come around here all the time,” Howard said.
