3 hospitalized after shooting outside Miami Gardens convenience store

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Gunfire rang out in the parking lot of a convenience store in Miami Gardens, sending three people to the hospital, witnesses said.

Miami Gardens Police responded to the scene of the shooting along 207th Street and Northwest 32nd Avenue, just before 8:15 p.m., Tuesday.

Upon arrival, responding officers found male victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

7News cameras captured a heavy police presence in the parking lot, late Tuesday night.

Police said this appears to have been a targeted shooting, but witnesses said there were plenty of customers in the parking lot at the time of the incident.

Witnesses said some customers ducked behind cars to avoid being shot.

“I got one here,” said one witness, as he pointed to bullet holes on his truck.

“This is my car here,” said another witness. “I got a bullet hole right here.”

Officials did not provide an exact number of victims, but witnesses at the scene told 7News three people were struck by bullets.

“If you open the door, it’s on the inside too,” said one man whose car was shot at.

Paramedics have transported the victims to area hospitals in unknown conditions.

Customers waited patiently for crime scene investigators to clear the scene so they could return to their vehicles.

Police have not provided any details about a possible shooter or shooters. No arrests have been made.
