    A young man was killed and two others injured in a shooting in northwest Miami-Dade early Monday, police and family members said.

    The shooting happened around 2 a.m. in the area of Northwest 15th Avenue and 69th Street.

    Family members said 19-year-old Jerome Adams was walking home with his cousin, Adam Hepburn, when they were shot at. Adams and Hepburn were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where Adams later died.


    "It's just devastating," said Natasha Hicks, who is Adams' cousin.

    Hepburn was undergoing surgery Monday, Hicks said.

    "Around 2 a.m. they were walking, leaving, I do not know. Apparently someone saw them walking and opened fire on them,” Hicks said. “We really do not know what happened."

    Miami-Dade Police said one of the victims drove himself to North Shore Hospital. Police said they are investigating the shooting.
