6 people hospitalized after drive-by shooting in Wynwood


Miami Police are searching for a shooter that hit six people who are now hospitalized after a drive-by shooting in Wynwood.

The shooting happened along Northwest First Court and 20th Street, Friday night.

People who were out and about said it sounded like a warzone after more than 60 shots rang out and hit six people, who are now in the hospital as the police search for the shooter.

“Why does it have to be like this?” said one witness.

“We heard, like, 60 gunshots,” said another witness.

As the sun rose Saturday morning, close to 100 yellow evidence markers lined the block of Wynwood after Friday night’s shootout.

“I remember it was just the gun and smoke coming out, like, the back window, because he was just in the back of the car,” said another witness.

Witnesses described the shooting as a drive-by. The shooter was long gone by the time officers arrived.

Police were alerted by a ShotSpotter in the area just before midnight. When they arrived, they found several people shot.

A few blocks away, some victims drove them selves to Jackson Health.

A total of six people were hit by gunfire, and the shooter is on the run as of Saturday morning.

“We could’ve been shot or hit at any time without even knowing,” said a witness.

7News reached out to Miami Police for an update. The conditions of the six gunshot victims are unknown, and there’s no description of the person police are looking for.
