Both were unintended targets, according to police.
“There were just a couple of really loud gunshots,” says Nate Lustgarten.
Lustgarten lives across the street from where it all went down.
“We don’t want to live in a neighborhood where you have police at all times but if that’s the case then that’s what has to get done,” says Lustgarten.
The hostess was shot in the arm and chest, she was rushed to Ryder Trauma Center. The second woman who was grazed was treated at the scene.READ MORE: Haiti Gang With Past Abductions Blamed For Kidnapping Missionaries
In the early morning hours, investigators could be seen laying down evidence markers trying to piece together exactly what happened.
The suspect is still out there.
Cynthia Flores just started working as a hostess a few doors down at a different restaurant, and hearing a fellow hostess was shot does not sit well.
“I’m like the first person when people go inside, it is scary, but they need to put more police around here,” says Flores.
Investigators originally detained three people who were inside of a vehicle following the shooting.MORE NEWS: Miami Police Investigate Bomb Threat
However, Miami Police told CBS4 News that they were not involved in the shooting but one of them was arrested for carrying a concealed firearm.
