Officers responded to the scene after 10 p.m. in the 9800 block of West Okeechobee Road after reports of a shooting in the area.

Investigators determined that Julio Espiritu opened fire on both his girlfriend, Angelina Rodriguez, and her son before turning the gun on himself, but did not release a reason why.

At the scene, Miami-Dade Police found Rodriguez dead inside the apartment while both her 14-year-old son and Espiritu were found suffering from gunshot wounds.

The male victims were rushed to Ryder Trauma Center with Espiritu in critical condition and the teenager in stable condition.
