NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews have taken a child and a man to the hospital after they were injured in a shooting in North Miami.

7News cameras captured the victims as emergency crews rushed them into Ryder Trauma Center, Sunday night.

The shooting took place along the 1000 block of Northeast 126th Street, shortly before 7 p.m.

According to Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, the victims initially drove themselves to Jackson North Medical Center.

“Respond to inter-hospital transport, a 10-year-old male with gunshot wounds at Jackson North,” said a dispatcher in radio transmissions.

From there, paramedics transported them by ambulance to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Cameras captured loved ones as they consoled each other and spoke with police outside the hospital.

On Monday, the great uncle of the 10-year-old spoke to 7News.

“We feel bad. We feel bad that this happened,” said Rashid Tahir.

Tahir told 7News about the moments that led up to the shooting.

“We were inside praying,” he said. “We have a little church here–we were praying, then all of a sudden, my nephew’s son– he opened the door and said, ‘I got shot.’ The people–somebody shot him. Everybody got scared. We called 911, and thankfully, everybody came quickly.”

The victims’ conditions are unknown.

“They shot him three times in the leg. He was bleeding, but thank God it’s under control, and he’s OK,” said Tahir.

Back at the scene, cameras showed crime scene tape cordoning off an area of a neighborhood.

Police have not provided further details, as they continue to investigate what led up to the shooting.
