SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Two people were injured and one man died after a shooting in a South Miami-Dade neighborhood.

The shooting took place along Southwest 247th Terrace near 113th Court, just after 2 a.m., Thursday.

According to police, people were standing in front of a home in the area when the shots rang out.

One of the victims, identified as 24-year-old Anthony Scott, transported himself to Homestead Hospital with a gunshot wound. He was then transported to Jackson South, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Scott’s girlfriend described him as a good father who took care of his daughter and his family.

“Within that time frame, we had reports from Homestead Hospital that a male arrived at their facility also suffering from an apparent gunshot wound,” said Miami-Dade Police detective Alvaro Zabaleta.

One woman, identified as 22-year-old Naja McNeer, was in front of the home when bullets began to fly, according to her brother, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

“My sister was shot. That’s all I heard,” he said. “You know, you don’t know who’s targeting you these days. Like, it’s scary. As long as we’ve been here, seven years, eight years, we’ve been here, ain’t nothing like this happened, so it’s just scary, and it’s traumatizing.”

While driving away from the scene, police said she hit a parked car, resulting in her Nissan flipping over.

The 22-year-old was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center with a gunshot wound to the leg, but she is expected to be OK.

A third victim, a 30-year-old off-duty Miami-Dade Corrections officer, had his hand grazed by a bullet. He was treated on the scene.

“I heard like three pops, but I didn’t hear the accident,” said neighbor Kathryn Rey.

7News cameras captured the car McNeer was driving flipped upside down at the scene.

“At this point, there’s no public threat that they know of, based on the information that they have,” said Zabaleta. “Then again, at any time when there’s gunfire, it puts the entire community at risk. One stray bullet could have made this situation even worse for the community.”

“I don’t feel intimidated, if that’s the word to use,” said Rey. “It’s usually very quiet.”

Police are still searching for the shooter.
