Four Children Hit by Bullets When Gunmen Fire on Park
Two masked men drove up to Miami's West Little River Park yesterday around 6 p.m. and began firing. Four children, one as young as 3 years old, were hit by stray bullets. None of the injuries was life-threatening.
"I saw this black car pull up, and three guys jumped out in masks. They took out AK-47s and started shooting toward the park," witness Lillian Towles tells NBCMiami .
The gunmen appeared to be using an AK-47 and a high-caliber hand gun and were targeting another group of men. None of those men was hit.
The two gunmen fled the scene in separate vehicles.
Police are looking for a blue Dodge Challenger and a black Ford Fusion or a Nissan Altima with dark tinted windows. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
