Police are investigating a drive-by shooting in a northwest Miami-Dade neighborhood that left a teen dead Wednesday morning.

The shooting happened around 10 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 7100 block of Northwest 14th Place, just blocks from Miami Northwestern Senior High School.

Miami-Dade Police officials confirmed a 17-year-old was killed in a shooting at the scene. The teen's name wasn't released.

Footage showed officers outside the apartment complex, which was closed off by yellow police crime scene tape.

At one point, a distraught woman heard screaming "I want to see my baby!" repeatedly to officers.

The teen's grandmother said she had been supposed to take him to school.

"I don't know what happened. I just know I was going to take him to school and he changed his mind and said he was going to get a ride here in the Lyft, then next 30 minutes I hear this happened," Anna Darden said.

Darden said the teen didn't live at the complex.

Police said they're searching for a suspect, who may have fled the scene on a motorcycle.
