An 8-year-old boy was shot and killed and two adults were wounded in a shooting Wednesday night in Dania Beach.

The three were shot around 7:40 p.m. in the 200 block of Northwest Ninth Avenue, according to the Broward Sheriff Office.

The boy was identified as Rashid Cunningham, a third-grader at Collins Elementary School, who lived with his grandmother. The two others wounded are cousins of the boy.

"The shooting needs to stop," Broward sheriff's spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright told reporters at the scene, mentioning a total of four shootings in the area since Christmas Day. "A child is dead."

The shooter remains at large and the sheriff's office is asking for the public's for help.
