Woman hurt in Miami Gardens drive-by shooting; baby suffers minor injuries

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A woman suffered two gunshot wounds in a drive-by shooting in Miami Gardens that also left a baby injured, Wednesday afternoon, police said.

Bullets grazed the 63-year-old woman in the neck and leg when, police said, subjects opened fire on a residence located along the 1500 block of Northwest 175th Terrace, just before 5 p.m.

She was treated on the scene and released.

Investigators said the 5-month-old baby, Naquan Gray, was covered by his father of the same name. Police said the infant was not grazed by a bullet, as earlier reported, but instead sustained minor scratches while being covered.

“He’s doing good,” the elder Gray said. “He’s straight.”

Georgia Lee, the woman’s mother and the baby’s great-grandmother, said she was inside during the drive-by shooting. “They were right here on the porch,” she said. “It’s just a drive-by shooting.”

The 5-month-old was in his baby seat with his dad on the porch when, witnesses said, several shots rang out.

Henry Elam, who was also inside, counted nine bullet holes in the front of the house. “I’m grateful,” he said, “I thank God. We were truly blessed.”

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue took the baby to Jackson North Medical Center. He was later released.

According to 7News sources, a known suspect used a large caliber rifle in the drive-by shooting. That subject remains at large, and the investigation is ongoing.
