Two men fired shots at each other in a confrontation Wednesday evening in west Miami-Dade, with a teenager ending up getting shot in the arm, police said.
One man was with his family in his car near the intersection of Northwest 76th Avenue and 1st Street when another man came out of his house and the confrontation occurred, police said.
The man in the car took off, police said, and they are looking for him.
Police said they believe it was his daughter who who was shot in the arm, though they aren't sure how.
The teenage girl went to Jackson Memorial Hospital with her mother and is in stable condition, according to police.
The man in the house is cooperating, they added.
Guillermo Alguino said he heard five shots.
“Oh, I didn’t know it was a gunshot until I saw all the police and everything. I said well, something happened,” he remarked.
