A shooting early Sunday left a man dead in Miami Gardens in front of his parents' house.

Friends of Thristan Hanson, a 24-year-old also known as "Ace TK Boogie," spent the morning mourning on social media after awakening to the news of his death.

The shooting occurred around 1 a.m. in the 18200 block of Northwest 41st Court, near the house Hanson's mother and father have owned for 31 years. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue airlifted Hanson to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he was declared dead.

Two other men were shot, Miami Gardens police said, and were driven to a hospital. Police said one has been released and one remains in critical condition.

Hanson was the second man in his 20s killed in Miami Gardens over the weekend. Michael Mathis, 21, died after a drive-by shooting Saturday morning.

"We are committed to the City of Miami Gardens community and are proactively seeking ways to cease this senseless gun violence. We will not stop our efforts, but instead increase our efforts," Miami Gardens police chief Delma Noel-Pratt said in an e-mailed statement. "There are no words that can take away the pain that the affected families must feel at this time. My heart goes out to the families and the community."
