2 dead after another drive-by shooting in Miami-Dade
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Two people were killed in a suspected drive-by shooting early Tuesday morning in the Brownsville area of Miami-Dade County.
Miami-Dade police say they responded to a ShotSpotter alert just before 1 a.m. in the 5200 block of Northwest 29th Avenue to find a silver BMW crashed into a fence and two people inside it with gunshot wounds.
A woman was declared dead at the scene. A man was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where he died from his injuries hours later, authorities say.
No further information has been released about the victims.
Police had Northwest 29th Avenue blocked off from 51st Terrace to 52nd Street. Several evidence markers showed where shell casings were found.
