MIAMI (WSVN) - UPDATE: There has been an arrest in this case.
A Miami woman is fighting for her life after witnesses said she was shot nearly a dozen times.
It happened between 10 and 11 p.m., Monday, at a home located at 450 N.W. 73rd Terrace.
The victim, 35-year-old Shaqueenia Hanna is a mother of six, and according to witnesses, the shooting happened in front of her children.
“My thoughts about the kids seeing it, it just tears me up because it’s something that they’re gonna carry for the rest of their lives,” said Tamika Wallace, a friend of Hanna’s.
According to investigators, this was a domestic incident in which Hanna and her ex-boyfriend, 30-year-old Terrell Jimmel Robinson, got into an altercation Monday night before he shot her and fled the scene. He remains at large.
Those who know Hanna said Robinson is one of the children’s father.
“It’s so sad that any father would do that in front of his own child,” said witness Lisa Sheffield. “Any man that shoots a woman in front of her kids that many times is a coward. He’s not a man.”
One neighbor spoke to 7News about what happened after she heard the multiple gunshots. “I waited till the gunshots was over,” Sheffield said. “I heard her kids screaming in the back about their mama, so I ran outside and looked over and saw the woman on the ground, and I just stood over her and prayed over her and called 911 to get us some help.”
Friends said Hanna and Robinson broke up years ago, but they said, Robinson was still jealous.
Hanna was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
Family members gathered outside of the hospital to support and comfort one another. Hanna’s sister said she thinks she will survive.
Relatives of Hanna also said they know exactly who shot her, and they are asking him to come forward. “Anybody that knows where he is, please come forward,” Wallace said. “If you’re hiding him, you’re just as bad as he is. He committed a crime, a heinous crime, in front of her children, and something needs to be done about that.”
If you have any information on this shooting or Robinson’s whereabouts, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
