Police probe Miami weekend shootings that killed 1, injured 3

MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are investigating two separate shootings in Miami that claimed the life of a woman and sent three people to the hospital within 24 hours over the weekend.

According to City of Miami Police, two women were shot in Liberty City, Monday morning.

Police and fire rescue units were dispatched to the scene near Northwest 63rd Street and 13th Avenue, at around 2 a.m.

Officials said the victims came under fire while they were inside a white sedan.

7News cameras captured investigators focusing on the women’s car, which appeared to have a bullet hole in the back passenger side and rear window.

Rescue crews transported the victims to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in unknown condition.

As of 5 a.m., a tow truck was at the scene removing the vehicle.

The roadway was cleared a short time later.

Monday’s shooting comes a day after police were called to the scene of a shooting in Overtown.

In this case, police said, a man and a woman were shot near Northwest 12th Street and First Avenue.

“I checked around, and I did find one lady, and she’s one of the neighbors here, and was shot in the foot,” said witness Chastity Orsatelliz. “The other neighbor, he was shot in the neck.”

The man survived while the woman succumbed to her injuries.

“Stop the madness. It’s just crazy,” said Orsatelliz.

Police have not released the victims’ names.

If you have any information on either of these shootings, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.
