Police are investigating a shooting on a busy Miami-Dade expressway that left a 9-year-old girl hospitalized.
Florida Highway Patrol officials said troopers responded to a shooting along the Don Shula Expressway near Killian Parkway just after 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Troopers said the driver of a gray Chrysler sedan was traveling southbound when a white Ford Mustang drove alongside and someone inside opened fire.
The gunfire hit the driver’s side of the Chrysler, before the Mustang moved to the passenger’s side and the suspect fired three more shots, hitting the girl who was a passenger in the Chrysler, according to the FHP.

The girl was rushed the Kendall Regional Trauma Center with non-life-threatening injuries. Her father, who was driving the car, wasn't injured. FHP officials did not identify either victim.
The Mustang later exited the expressway at Southwest 152nd Street.
Investigators have not released any information about the shooter or shooters involved, or what may have led to the incident.
The FHP released photos Wednesday afternoon of the car that had been shot that showed bullet holes and blood on the inside of the passenger door.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FHP or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
