Two adults and two children were injured in a shooting outside a home in Golden Glades Monday evening.

Miami-Dade police responded to the 200 block of South Biscayne River Drive, after they said a suspect in a black sedan approached some residents, opened fire into a large crowd, and then fled the scene.

The victims -- a 21-year-old woman, a 22-year-old man, a 6-year-old boy and a 3-year-old girl -- were found suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and were taken to the hospital in stable condition, officials said.

“It sounded like they were using like an AK, so as soon as they started shooting everyone ducked to the ground. Like everybody hit the floor,” said a witness who asked not to be identified. 

The woman said she was there when the shooting happened. She said she was part of a group hanging outside at a family member’s house when the shooter pulled up.

“Less than 15 minutes of us just arriving to the location, somebody pulled up, a car pulled up and started shooting. It was just like 30 shots probably,” she said. 

The woman said none of her family members were injured, but she drove the two adults who were shot to the hospital. 

"We should be outraged," said Miami-Dade Detective Kristopher Welch. "This is a heinous crime. This is a family-oriented community."

Further information was not available. Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
