Police are searching for a vehicle that they say was involved in a Miami Beach shooting Wednesday morning.

Miami Beach Police officials said they received calls of shots being fired from a vehicle in the area of 44th Street and Collins Avenue.

Their investigation into the incident led them further up the road - to North Beach. Near the area of 74th and Gary Avenue, police say they discovered a white Mercedes with several bullet holes in the vehicle.

Miami Beach Fire Rescue treated one victim at the scene with a laceration on her arm. Authorities say the injury was caused by broken glass.

“The information that we received was the shooting was amongst two vehicles, a white Mercedes as well as an SUV BMW white in color,” said Officer Ernesto Rodriguez with the Miami Beach Police Department. “We know there was some sort of disturbance between the occupants of both vehicles. We don't know if that began out of the vehicle at a different location.

Police are now saying this was not a road rage incident. They do believe the people in the two cars had met earlier, prior to the shooting. 

No other information was immediately known.
