Detectives from the Miami-Dade Police Department, Northside District, are investigating a double shooting that left a 15 year old male critically injured and a 55 year old male seriously injured in northwest Miami-Dade.
According to investigators just before 10:30 p.m. Thursday night, officers were dispatched to an apartment complex located at 4725 NW 24 Avenue, to reports of a juvenile shot. Responding officers discovered the juvenile suffering from apparent gunshot wounds to the groin, hands, and legs. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue personnel responded and transported the victim to the Ryder Trauma at Jackson Memorial Hospital, in critical condition.
Further investigation revealed a second victim was also shot during the altercation. Detectives say a 55 year old male was walking to a friend's apartment when the shots rang out. The victim advised detectives he observed two males running away from the scene. The 55 year old drove himself to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Emergency Room with a gunshot wound to his forearm and buttock.
The investigation continues.
