Woman and Man Found Shot in Northwest Miami-Dade

Police are looking for the person who shot a man and hit a woman who was caught in the crossfire Wednesday afternoon in northwest Miami-Dade.

The shootings happened around 4 p.m. in the area of Northwest 51st Street and 32nd Avenue, Miami-Dade Police said.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found the woman suffering from an apparent gunshot wound in her car. The woman told officers she had been shot about a block away and drove herself away from the scene and called 911.

The woman was taken to a local hospital, with non-life threatening injuries. She was identified by family members as 52-year-old Terry Fairell. Police believe Fairell was an innocent bystander in the shooting.

The grey Chevy sedan that the woman was found in had a shattered window, possibly from a bullet, and was surrounded by yellow caution tape at the scene.

As detectives investigated, they found a man had also been shot in the area the woman was shot at, and he drove himself to the area of Northwest 36th Street and Northwest 22nd Avenue, officials said.

The man was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he was also expected to survive.

Police said the man is believed to be the intended target of the shooting. Officials said they were searching for three or four suspects believed to be armed who fled the scene.

As a result of the shooting, nearby Lorah Park Elementary School was placed on lockdown as a precaution, but the lockdown was later lifted.

No other information was immediately known.
