A dozen shots hit Miami-Dade house; man wounded in stomach


Miami Herald staff report

A house with several people sleeping inside was shot up Thursday morning in Northwest Miami-Dade.

More than a dozen shots hit the house at Northwest 82nd Terrace at Second Avenue. One man inside was struck in the stomach and taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Besides getting shot, Delisson Orvil also was cut by broken glass in the drive-by.

“Like bombs — boom, boom, boom — like 20 big bombs,” neighbor Shadon Jackson told CBS 4.

Orvil said his family was sleeping when more than a dozen bullets came flying into their home, puncturing walls and shattering windows. Orvil’s wife, mother and two children ages 7 and 12 were not injured.

Neighbors said they heard a car speeding off after the gunfire, which peppered the home at about 2 a.m. Thursday.

Miami-Dade police are looking for suspects and a motive.
