Police are investigating a shooting in northeast Miami-Dade that left one man dead and another man hospitalized Monday.

Miami-Dade Police units responded to the area of Ives Dairy Road and Northeast 24th Avenue around 5:30 p.m. and found two men suffering from gunshot wounds, officials said.

Footage showed a smashed blue Dodge Charger that had slammed into a fence at the scene. A white Lexus was also parked nearby with heavy damage but it's unclear if it was involved.

One man had been struck in the head and another in his upper torso. Both were taken to a nearby hospital, where one of the men was pronounced dead, according to police.

The identities of the men haven't been released.

"I hear a bunch of bullets going off and I was like, 'what’s going on' and next thing you know I hear wreckage and I hear people screaming," witness Shawn Marlin said. "It was a mess. And I came out there and all hell was breaking loose. Tons of cops showing up.”

Homicide detectives have taken over the investigation. There were no further details immediately available.
