Police have arrested a man who they say shot four people, including two young children, during an argument at a family gathering in southwest Miami-Dade early Sunday morning.
Alfonzo Amaker, 30, faces four counts of attempted second-degree murder in the shooting incident that took place just after 2 a.m.
The shooting happened following an argument in a residential area on Pierce Street, just off of Southwest 152nd Avenue, police said.
The altercation happened inside the home during a family gathering, police said.
A witness on the scene said her pregnant daughter and two grandchildren -- ages 4 and 6 -- were shot during the argument.
“When you add the component of children, innocent children, to this type of tragedy it takes it to a whole new level," MDPD's Angel Rodriguez said. “We’re just very thankful in this case that the children are going to be ok."
The identities of the adults -- ages 27 and 42 -- have not yet been released.
The Miami-Dade Police department said the victims were transported to area hospitals and are currently in stable condition.
