Miami police responded Thursday afternoon to a report of domestic shooting in a Miami neighborhood. When officers arrived at the home in the area of Southwest 23rd Avenue and 16th Terrace they found a husband and wife wounded.

A woman was killed and a man was critically injured Thursday in what police say appears to have been a murder and attempted suicide.

A 911 call came in by a “male juvenile” about 3:40 p.m. reporting a shooting in the area of Southwest 23rd Avenue and 16th Terrace in Miami’s Coral Way neighborhood.

Police later said the man and woman involved in the shooting were the boy’s parents.

When officers arrived at the home, they found the man and woman, both wounded.

Both were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital Trauma Center for treatment. The woman later died from her injuries. The man was in critical condition Thursday night, police say.
