Miami Gardens Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units were on the scene of a reported shooting in Miami Gardens around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Police found a shot-up vehicle when they arrived at 20721 NW 17th Ave. The two occupants had both been shot and were airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition, said Miami Gardens police spokesperson, detective Mike Wright.

Police officers were canvassing the area looking for evidence, including any other vehicles that may have left the scene.
