The Miami-Dade Police Department, Homicide Bureau is investigating a shooting that resulted in the death of a toddler and an adult female injured.

According to investigators, officers responded to a ShotSpotter alert and discovered a toddler suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.  The officers swiftly placed the 3 year-old in a police vehicle and transported him to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. As other officers arrived, they discovered a second victim that had also been shot.  Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded and transported the adult female to Aventura Hospital in stable condition.  The preliminary investigation revealed that the victims were attending a child’s birthday party at the residence, which is a short-term rental.  The subject fled in an unknown direction and remains at large.

The investigation continues.
