Miami Police Investigating Shooting: 2 Dead, 7-Year-Old Injured

The Miami Police Department said two adults are dead and a child was injured in a shooting on Saturday afternoon.

Police responded to reports of multiple people found shot. Roberto Alfonso Jr., 55, and and Ivy Abigail Torres, 36, were confirmed dead, while a 7-year-old child sustained non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Investigators say Alfonso had a domestic connection to the Torres; however, the seven-year-old boy is not his son. Florida Department of Children and Families is determining who will take custody of the child, since the female victim was the mother.

The incident occurred near the area of Northwest 36th Court and 2nd Street.

Officers working the scene say their focus is on the front right of the duplex. Detectives say the Torres was shot dead at the scene. Alfonso was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. The youngest victim, 7 years old, suffered one gunshot wound and transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

One neighbor living right across the street says the woman was very approachable, always saying hi when passing his house.

Officers say this homicide investigation may or may not be the result of a domestic dispute.  

No other details were made available.
