MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A 17-year-old girl and three 19-year-old males are hospitalized after a shooting in which at least 40 rounds were fired.
It happened Monday, around 6:30 p.m., in the area of NW 58 Street and 24 Avenue in Brownsville.
‘Detectives do not have a whole lot of information as to what brought about the shooting. Our detectives are trying to determine if this was the result of a drive-by, or if this was the result of two groups arguing and shots were fired among them,” said police Detective Angel Rodriguez.
Investigators are also trying to determine if there was more than one person who fired the shots.
“Right now, I do not have the specifics as to the distance, how far away from the building they were, or specifically where the shots came from. We do know that there were at least 40 rounds that were fired and that four victims were struck as a result of this gunfire,” said Rodriguez.
One of the three 19-year-olds and the teen girl were taken to the Jackson Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition. The other two were listed as stable.
