West Little River Shooting Leaves a Woman Dead and Five Injured (Update)

​Miami-Dade Police this morning are looking for two shooters who lit up a front lawn in West Little River just before midnight last night, leaving a 20-year-old woman dead and five men wounded.

An argument between the woman and her boyfriend, who was just released after a long stint in federal prison, may have sparked the violence.

Update: Police have identified the dead woman as 22-year-old Luvonia Williams. They're looking for brothers Charles Warren Johnson, who is 30, and 28-year-old David Johnson, the suspected shooters.

Police haven't released the names of any of the victims yet, but CBS4 reports that the woman who died has a sister named Teesha Williams.

"There was more than one of them," Williams tells the station. "They got to pay for what they did. My sister didn't mess with nobody, didn't mess with nobody, she was the baby.

The argument broke out at 11:52 p.m., says Det. Alvaro Zabaleta, a spokesman for the department, at a house in the 1900 block of NW 92nd St. Police found the six victims and a car riddled with bullet holes.
