Miami Police are investigating a morning shooting in which two vans were struck – one carrying school children.
Detectives say both vans were traveling on NW 24th Avenue and 46th Street when both drivers say they heard the sound of windows shattering. A group of elementary school students were taken off one van, while a second carrying patients from Miami Jewish Health System was also evacuated.
No one was injured and police are determining whether the vehicles were hit by bullets or pellets.
Miami-Dade School Superintendent Alberto Carvakho tweeted his reaction from the scene to yet another shooting involving students:
Unacceptable tragedy averted. School bus hit by gunfire in Brownsville area. All students safe. The sanctity of children is violated again. — Alberto M. Carvalho (@MiamiSup) February 10, 2017
