Four People Shot in Miami Gardens: Police

A man wanted in connection to a quadruple shooting during a party at a Miami Gardens apartment complex turned himself in to police Wednesday, officials said.

Ivan Clark, 21, turned himself in and will face four counts of attempted second-degree murder, Miami Gardens Police said. It was unknown if he has an attorney.

The shooting was reported in the 600 block of Northwest 177th Street Tuesday afternoon.

Investigators say it happened in broad daylight as people were gathering for a birthday party. Right after the shots were fired a woman pulled into the complex to visit a friend. When she arrived she said she found out her friend's son was one of those hit by a bullet.

"I didn't see nothing... I just pulled up at the wrong time to visit my friend, whose son got shot," she said.

Police officials said two victims were critical but stable, one was transported to the hospital on the ground and the fourth was treated at the scene.

All of the victims are adults and are believed to be males.

Police said Clark has a criminal past and has done prison time for burglary and grand theft.

Investigators said the motive for the shooting is still under investigation.
