Woman, 2 men hospitalized after shooting in South Beach

Gunfire tore through a busy section of South Beach, sending a woman and two men to the hospital, police said.

Miami Beach Police and Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the shooting along the 700 block of Washington Street, just after 8:40 p.m., Sunday.

Responding officers found two victims suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.

7News cameras captured a heavy police presence and evidence markers on the roadway and sidewalk.

Paramedics transported the male victims to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center. One of the men was initially listed in critical condition, but they are both currently listed in stable condition.

Officials said the woman was grazed by a bullet. She was taken to Mount Sinai Medical Center in stable condition.

Investigators said they are looking for a dark SUV with tinted windows, possibly a Jaguar, occupied by three male subjects. The vehicle possibly has bullet holes on it.

Police said crime scene investigators located at least two types of shell casings at the scene, and that has led them to believe there was an exchange of gunfire.

“We’ll be looking at technology to help us with this investigation, and that’ll include license plate readers, city surveillance cameras, as well as any possible witnesses in the area with cellphone video,” said Miami Beach Police Officer Ernesto Rodriguez.

On Monday morning, cellphone video was released showing the moment a man fired seven shots.
