Miami and Miami-Dade police officers investigate on Friday the scene of a fatal overnight shooting in the Liberty City area.

Miami and Miami-Dade police officers are on the scene of a fatal overnight shooting in the Liberty City area that has the roads between Northwest 15th through 17th avenues and Northwest 67th through 71st streets closed, Miami Police spokeswoman Kiara Delva said.

Delva said police were alerted to the shooting by their Shotspotter technology just after 6:30 a.m. Friday.

When fire rescue arrived, they found a man with several gunshot wounds on the road near Northwest 15th Street and 68th Avenue. They were unable to resuscitate him.

Delva said homicide detectives are investigating and canvassing the area for witnesses and questioning several people. The man’s identity has not been released.

The roads will remain closed as officers investigate. “They’re going to be here for awhile,” Delva said. “Please avoid the area.”
