No. 2 - A Miami-Dade family is in shock after over thirty rounds were fired into their home early Wednesday morning.
According to police, no one was struck by the bullets, but homeowner Sandra Jones says her four children were inside the house at the time at the home located on the 8000 block of Northwest 14th Avenue. Their bedrooms, along with the living room and bathroom, were riddled with bullets.
No. 3 - A pregnant woman's call to 911 was released Wednesday after she claimed former Miami Dolphins running back Mark Walton punched her in the head.
Walton, 22, was charged with aggravated battery on a pregnant person, a felony with a 15-year maximum sentence. It was his fourth arrest in less than a year. He appeared in a Broward County courtroom Wednesday and was given $10,000 bond and a stay-away order from the victim. Walton bonded out later in the evening.
No. 4 - House impeachment investigators will hear from two key witnesses Thursday who grew alarmed by how President Donald Trump and others in his orbit were conducting foreign policy in Ukraine, capping an intense week in the historic inquiry.
The two witnesses set to appear Thursday are the last scheduled for public hearings in an inquiry that brought hours of testimony from a roster of current and former U.S. government officials defying Trump's orders not to appear.
No. 5 - Students in Miami-Dade could get some extra sleep in the coming years as officials are debating whether to start classes later in the morning.
Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho tweeted late Wednesday night that the district approved the process of considering later start times starting in the 2020-21 school year. Carvahlo did not give details about when the times would be moved to, but various reports have proposed times including 8 a.m. for elementary school students and as late as 9:30 a.m. for high schools.
No. 6 - Reggie and Tammy Meadows are like many grandparents, loving, playful and caring. But they are now raising two of their grandchildren, Malaya and Malakai, since the death of their daughter, Heather, in 2016 when she came to Miami for the popular Brazillian butt lift procedure.
