MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Neighbors in one Hialeah neighborhood woke up to multiple police cars and crime scene tape outside their apartments.
Some even found the cars they’d parked overnight had been damaged in an early morning shooting that left at least one person dead.
“It’s scary to hear that a person got killed right in front of our home,” said Whitney Perez.
The shooting happened around 1 a.m. on W 25th Court near W 60th Street.
Chopper4 spotted a body covered by a tarp in the middle of the road. Nearby a car’s rear window had been shattered by a bullet, another car had been dented.
Investigators spent part of the morning focused on the car with the shattered window.
“I told my friends I was like, I heard a shooting,” said Nathan Sanchez.
He said he was playing video games when he heard what sounded like a firework.
“I was playing GTA and then I just heard a bang sound and I got really scared,” said Sanchez.
Another neighbor said he heard approximately 11 shots.
Hialeah police couldn’t confirm how many people had been shot or if anyone was taken to the hospital.
One person was seen in the back of a cruiser, but police wouldn’t say if anyone was in custody.
“I’ve never experienced something like this, in my experience it’s scary,” said Perez.
Police have released little information about the shooting but did confirm they were conducting a homicide investigation.
