Man shot after calling 911 to report gunshots
NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE (WSVN) -- Police are searching for a gunman after an innocent pedestrian was shot in Northwest Miami-Dade.
The victim was walking along Northwest 101st Street and Fifth Avenue, when he told police he heard gunshots. The man said he then felt a sharp pain, but he did not see the shooter.
Those closest to him are now stunned. "His kids are like the world to him. It's like there's nothing he wouldn't do. He makes sure home is taken care of. He goes to work, sometimes works doubles," said a woman who knows the man.
She also said she could not think why anyone would target him. "I don't know what happened," she added. "I don't know anybody that he's going through anything with, or nothing."
He was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
