Shots fired outside Little Haiti school; students safe

MIAMI (WSVN) - Gunshots struck the outside of Toussaint L’Ouverture Elementary School in Little Haiti around 6 p.m., Friday night, according to school officials.

At 7 p.m., Miami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho tweeted, “Sickening. After earlier shootings that threatened many and injured three, shots are fired again and strike Toussaint L’Ouverture elementary.”

Students were inside the school for after school programs when the shots rang out, Carvalho said. He added that no students or school staff were hurt.

Officials placed the school on lockdown, which was later lifted.

Police have not released any information about the shooting.

Earlier in the day, three ninth-graders were shot in a drive-by shooting near Carol City High School in Miami Gardens.
