1 dead, 1 injured in North Miami Beach shooting

North Miami Beach investigators are looking for a group who opened fire on a home Tuesday night, leaving one man dead and sending another to the hospital.

Police said they received calls from neighbors around 7:15 p.m. about shots fired in the area. According to witnesses, two to three men emerged from a dark-colored car with tinted windows and opened fire on the two men who were inside playing video games. Police believe the gunmen fired shots into a window of the home on the corner of Northeast 14th Avenue and 175th Street.

Police found one man lying dead on a bed and the other, who was transported to Aventura Hospital, with a gunshot wound to the hand.

Kathy Katerman, a North Miami Beach police spokeswoman, said investigators don’t have a motive for the shooting.

“The two that were shot do not reside in the house,” Katerman said. “They were visitors.”

Anyone with information on the case is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
