A 13-year-old boy was wounded Thursday night in a shooting in Northwest Miami-Dade.
A Miami-Dade police spokesman said the drive-by shooting happened at Northwest 81st Street near 12th Avenue.
According to police, the boy and a friend were walking home about 7:30 p.m. when a car pulled up, someone fired a gun, and the boys head was grazed by a bullet.
A newer silver or gray in color Nissan Altima rolled up beside them rolled down the window and fired several shots at the victim, said Detective Robin Pinkard of Miami-Dade police.
I heard pop, pop, pop that was it, said Shawn Wayne, who lives in the neighborhood.
The 13-year-old boy was taken to the hospital. His friend was not hurt.
Police are looking for a newer model gray or silver Nissan Altima.
Officers said the boy is expected to be OK. Investigators are looking for the car, the shooter, and the reason behind the shooting.
Detectives are talking to witnesses to see if this was a targeted incident, Pinkard said.
