One teenager was shot and killed and another hospitalized after a dispute between family members turned deadly in southwest Miami-Dade early Friday morning, police said.

The incident happened shortly before 1 a.m. at a home in the 12800 block of Southwest 263rd Terrace.

Miami-Dade Police officials said the victims, an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl, were wounded after a dispute between family members escalated to a shooting. Both victims were rushed to the hospital by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.

The 18-year-old was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where police said he died from his injuries. 

The 17-year-old girl was taken to Kendall Hospital where she was in stable condition. 

The neighborhood where the incident took place has since been taped off and police said someone has been taken into custody. 

A car that was covered in a yellow tarp and appeared to have crashed was towed from the scene later Friday morning.

The incident is the seventh shooting in southwest Miami-Dade in the last two weeks, and the fourth involving teenagers.
