A man wounded Sunday night in a drive-by shooting in Overtown has died while a pregnant woman also struck by bullets remains hospitalized after giving birth.
Tiffany Davis, 26, was eight months pregnant and doctors at Jackson Memorial Hospital prematurely delivered her baby daughter, who was also wounded in the arm.
“The bullet went through the mother’s stomach and through the baby’s arm,” said Phillip Milton, who is the baby’s father and Davis’ boyfriend. Milton said the child, who weighed four pounds, has been named Skyler.
The shooting happened around 7:45 p.m. outside a convenience store at Northwest Second Court and Northwest 17th Street, where Davis’ boyfriend works.
After the shooting, a green mini-van vehicle was seen speeding from the scene. It’s unclear how many shooters were involved or who they targeted. The name of the victim has not been released by police.
Anyone who can help solve this case is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305- 471-8477.
