Miami Beach police on Sunday were looking for a shooter who wounded a bystander on South Beach.

A man was shot in the hand on Saturday evening and taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital. His life is not in danger, police said.

The shooter got into an argument with someone else on Collins Avenue at 11th Street, and it moved a block north. The shooter fired his gun after getting out of a gray car. A bullet struck the victim at 6:45 p.m., said Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez. The man who was shot was not involved in the argument.

The shooter and his intended target bolted from the area, Rodriguez said.
