A man who opened fire on his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend in a car in southwest Miami-Dade late Wednesday turned himself in, police said.

Miami-Dade Police officials said the shooting happened around 11 p.m. in the area of Southwest 50th Street and 98th Avenue.

NBC 6's Roxanne Vargas has more on the motives behind the double shooting.

Carmen Castro, a neighbor, said she heard seven gunshots.

“I proceeded to look through all the windows to see what was happening," she said.

The victims drove to a gas station near Bird Road and Southwest 107th Avenue, where Miami-Dade Fire Rescue was called. The victims were transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center.

The 30-year-old male victim was in critical condition while the 23-year-old female victim was in stable condition. Police did not release their identities.

A short time later, a man turned himself into police as the shooter in the incident and was taken into custody. A firearm was also recovered.

The alleged shooter, 23-year-old Jonathan Clemente, was the woman's ex-boyfriend and admitted to investigators that he was upset about her new relationship.
