    Police say an 8-year-old girl is in critical condition after being shot in the head during a drive-by shooting outside a northwest Miami-Dade home.

    Miami-Dade police Det. Robin Pinkard said in a news release that Jada Page was standing near the front door of the house on Northwest 25th Avenue when the shooting started Sunday evening.

    The girl was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center where family said she was on life support. Her 32-year-old father James Page was shot multiple times in the torso and taken to the same hospital where he was listed in stable condition.

    Authorities say at least two men pulled up in a black, 4-door Ford sedan and began shooting at the father.

    Police don't have anyone in custody. They say it's too early to say whether the shooting was related to another shooting over the weekend in which two people were killed at a wake.

    Miami-Dade Police said they've added an additional $20,000 reward to the $3,000 Crime Stoppers reward being offered for tips in the case.

    Meanwhile, Miami-Dade Police are investigating a separate shooting over the weekend that ended with two people, including a 15-year-old boy, dead.

    That shooting happened around 12:40 a.m. Saturday in the area of Northwest 19th Avenue and Northwest 83rd Terrace.
