Police are investigating a shooting at a house party in southwest Miami-Dade late Saturday that claimed the life of a teenager.
Officers arrived at the scene near 20220 Southwest 132nd Avenue around 11 p.m. after reports of a shooting in the area, Miami-Dade Police officials said. Once they arrived, officers found the teen who was suffering from gunshot wounds.
The boy, identified as 15-year-old Angel Cueli, was airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center, where he later died.
Investigators said house party guests were on the side of the home when an unknown suspect approached on foot and fired multiple times toward them. The suspect then ran to a car that was waiting and fled the scene.
No other injuries were reported. Neighbors reported hearing multiple gunshots in the area.
“I heard ‘pop, pop, pop, pop’ and then I heard all the kids running for their life,” said one neighbor, who didn’t want to be identified.
In a tweet, Miami-Dade County Superintendent Alberto Carvalho passed on giving the typical thoughts and prayers condolence. Instead, he asked the community to share any information they may have on the possible shooter.
Homicide detectives are investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Police or Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers.
