    Police are investigating a drive-by shooting in North Miami Beach that sent one man to the hospital Wednesday morning.

    The shooting happened a little before 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of Northeast 171st Street and Northeast 19th Avenue.

    The victim, a man in his early 20s, was shot multiple times by someone who pulled up in a dark colored car and opened fire, police said.

    He was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center where he was in stable condition, officials said.

    Police called the shooting a daring attack as the scene is just yards away from North Miami Beach City Hall and the police station. A car at the scene was riddled with bullet holes and police had placed about two dozen evidence markers where some of the bullets had landed.

    Officials said they don't know if there was more than one suspect in the shooter's car, but they said the victim was alone.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
