NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Detectives and police officers were at the scene of a residential neighborhood in North Miami Beach after a shooting that left two people dead inside a home.

The incident occurred around 4:30 a.m. on Northeast 170th Street and Northeast 16th Avenue. The Mobile Command Center and Crime Scene Technicians were also present, as is customary in shooting investigations.

Around 5 a.m., 7News sources reported that fire rescue crews left to transport an individual in critical condition to HCA Florida Aventura Hospital.

Limited information is available as police continue their investigation and interview witnesses in the area.

“This never happens here, never,” said Faith Davis, a resident in the area.

Family and friends confirmed to 7News that one of the victims was 27-year-old Daveanand Lee Thomas. According to a neighbor, Thomas had recently moved in with his son to a home next to his parents.

Edelia said she was in shock when her husband received the call about their nephew and they rushed to his house to confirm.

Thomas’ uncle described Thomas as a good boy, his voice choked with tears.

Other family members said Thomas was with his girlfriend, but they are uncertain about her condition.

Tuesday morning, investigators were seen photographing a man’s shoes, presumably because he was a witness inside the home at the time of the crime.

“Davis was a good person and he has got a son and now he is gone, It’s like what happened, we don’t know what happened,” said one of the neighbor.

No one is in custody as the police investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information on this crime, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a reward of up to $5,000.
