Witnessing a crime and reporting it can be just as frightening as being the victim of a crime. Here’s what you should do if you witness illegal activity.

Shots fired into a pickup truck Sunday night killed one adult and one 7-year-old on Northwest 37th Avenue, Miami Gardens police say.

Police believe the shooting, which occurred around 207th Street at about 7:12 p.m., was a “targeted shooting.” That’s the same phrase used by Miramar police in describing the murder of a black male in his 20s that occurred five hours later and 2.5 miles away.

Miramar spokesperson Tania Rues said Miramar and Miami Gardens detectives did meet Monday morning and “at this time, it doesn’t appear they are related.”
