Man in Critical After Shooting at Park in Miami Gardens

A lockdown at three schools in Miami Gardens has been lifted after a shooting at a nearby park. A man was shot and rushed to the hospital in critical condition, police confirmed.

Police responded to Miami Carol City Park on Northwest 185th Street and 32nd Avenue. The incident happened one block away from Miami Carol City Senior High School. The high school along with Miami Carol Middle and Barbara Hawkins Elementary were put on lockdown, school officials said.

Aerial footage showed a person being placed on a gurney and airlifted to the hospital.

The victim's cousin told NBC 6 the man parked his work truck when the shooting happened. The victim still had his personal belongings on him, so it is not believed to be a robbery. 

Police said the suspect drove off in a black BMW. No arrests were made.
