Police investigating possible drive-by shooting in North Miami Beach that left one dead

NORTH MIAMI, FLA. (WSVN) - Police are investigating a possible drive-by shooting in North Miami Beach Sunday morning.

One person has died as a result. Another person’s condition is stable.

At Northeast 167th Street and Northeast 1st Avenue, a major police presence is on the scene after a damaged car was towed away. Police blocked traffic in both directions.

One woman who arrived on the scene said her sister was in the vehicle, and said the driver of the car died.

“At this point I’ve been trying to reach her since then. She called me like 2:45 this morning and said that the car they were in just got shot up. ” the woman said.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

One witness said a car pulled up next to a black Infiniti sedan near 2nd avenue and began shooting.

The occupants of the Infiniti were taken to Jackson North Medical Center.

The witness said, “This was animalistic. We really thought it was like they knew each other, the guy pulls up and comes to a slight stop, and before the time it takes to say ‘Hey, how you doing?’ Gunshots. it was a crazy scene. I was sitting behind the victim, and about seven eight shots were let out. Just a lot of fire. Just a lot of smoke and a lot of fire. It’s too much. I’ve got three kids out here, one of which is almost a teenager, and now I’ve got to worry about when he leaves. It was senseless.”
