Two people were killed and a third is in critical condition after someone peppered the courtyard of a Liberty City apartment complex Friday just after midnight.
Miami police hadn’t released a lot of information, other than to say the area is a known hot spot for narcotics transactions and it’s the same area where a Miami patrol car was struck by a bullet a couple of weeks ago.
A male and a female were killed. Another woman remained hospitalized at Jackson Memorial Ryder Trauma Center. Police said the victims were hanging out with a group of friends when the shooting occurred.
The shooting happened at about 12:50 a.m. at an apartment complex at Northwest Eighth Avenue and 70th Street.
