A New Year’s Day shooting left seven people injured in Miami-Dade’s West Little River neighborhood Sunday evening.

Miami-Dade police said the victims were standing outside a house at Northwest 81st Street and Northwest 14th Avenue around 6 p.m. when a car pulled up to the home and someone inside opened fire.

Three of the victims are teenagers. Six of the victims are in stable condition. A 17-year-old is in critical condition. Detective Robin Pinkard said they have not determined if the victims are related but presume they were gathered to celebrate the holiday.

Police believe there may be more than one suspect. They did not give a description of the suspect’s vehicle but are interviewing witnesses and some of the victims.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crimestoppers at 305-471-8477.
