A 20-year-old man is dead and a 4-year-old girl is in the hospital after both were shot Friday night in Miramar.

The man was identified Monday by Miramar police as Cedrick Tweety.

According to police, the shootings happened at about 6:30 p.m. near the 6100 block of Northwest 40th Court. Police are still investigating and haven't released the names of the victims, said Miramar Detective Carlos Villalona.

Police said Tweety and the girl, who were not related, knew each other and were outside when they were shot by someone who was either on foot or in a car, but they believe a vehicle was involved in the incident.

They also think Tweety was the intended target.

A woman, who did not want to be identified or filmed, told WSVN she saw two men firing guns.
