1 dead, 1 hospitalized after shots fired in Miami Gardens

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - One person is dead and another one was rushed to the hospital after a reported shooting in a Miami Gardens neighborhood, Tuesday.

According to Miami Gardens Police, they received a call of shots fired at a home located near Northwest 157th Street and 17th Place, sometime before 4:30 a.m.

“It was still dark out. I heard brakes squealing,” said Willie Harrell, who lives nearby. “Next thing I know, I heard a couple shots, and then I heard the police and that’s when I got out of bed.”

Upon their arrival, police set up a perimeter and could be seen walking around in tactical gear with their guns drawn. A chopper also circled overhead, while K-9 units paced up and down the block.

For Brad Jones and his two daughters, a typical Tuesday morning was taken over by fear and chaos. “I just moved over here, so I really don’t know,” said Jones. “This is my first time seeing anything like this.”

7Skyforce flew over the scene, where a body could be seen covered by a yellow tarp. Investigators said the victim was found deceased inside the home in question.

7News captured a second victim being wheeled away on a stretcher and loaded onto a helicopter that had to land on North Dade Middle School’s playing field. That person was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition.

Investigators are now searching for Emmanuel Saint Fleur, who is said to be wanted for questioning regarding the shooting.

The identities of the victims have not yet been released.

Multiple agencies are assisting in the investigation, including Miami-Dade Police and City of Miami Police.
