Man and Woman Hurt in Miami Beach Shooting: Police

A man and a woman were shot and injured while sitting in a car in Miami Beach Thursday morning, officials said.

According to Miami Beach Police, two vehicles were involved in the shooting at Ninth and Collins avenues just before 8 a.m.

The two victims were taken to Mt. Sinai Medical Center. Their conditions were not released, but their injuries were said to be non-life threatening.

Surveillance cameras from a nearby hotel captured the drive-by shooting and show a white car driving past and opening fire at the other car.

Police have one person of interest in custody. They said Kareem Stuart was arrested on unrelated charges but said he was driving a car that matched the description of the one from the shooting.

A gun was also recovered at the scene, police said.

Police are working to confirm whether the shooting was connected to an earlier shooting at the Mokai Lounge nightclub, located at 235 23rd Street in Miami Beach.

No further information was immediately available.
