Shortly after 9 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call of shots fired at 12045 SW 218 St., in the Goulds neighborhood of Miami.

Officers arrived to the area to find a silver sedan had crashed into a tree, according to Miami-Dade Police Department spokesperson Jennifer Capote. Officers found two females suffering from gunshot wounds inside the vehicle.
