One person was shot to death near Liberty Square in Miami late Thursday night, police announced.
The victim, who has yet to be publicly identified, was pronounced dead at the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Miami police posted on Twitter.
Around 10:50 p.m., Miami police spokesman Christopher Bess announced that officers were in route to the crime scene at 6403 NW 12th Ave.
It is unclear how many shots were fired and if any arrests were made.
This is the city’s third fatal shooting incident in three days. On Wednesday night, a man was killed in Little Haiti in the area of Northeast 57th Street. There are still no suspects or a motive for that shooting, police say. On Tuesday, Pedro Lazaro Blanco was found shot and killed in Little Havana.
In addition to the cases in Miami, over the past two weeks, gun violence across unincorporated Miami-Dade has claimed the lives of five people and injured six others.
