At least four children were struck with bullets after a group of men pulled up to a popular Miami-Dade County park and opened fire Tuesday evening, police said.
The shooting happened at West Little River Park, located at 2326 NW 84th Street.
Police said at least two gunmen jumped out of two cars at around 6:00 p.m. with what appeared to be an AK-47 and a high-powered hand gun and began firing at a group of men who were in the park.
“I saw this black car pull up and three guys jumped out in masks, they took out AK-47s and started shooting toward the park,” said witness Lillian Towles.
The spray of bullets hit several children at the popular park where many optimist football and cheerleading squads practice, police said.
A 3-year-old boy was grazed by a bullet and two boys, ages 11 and 13, were hit while practicing with their teammates from the Northside Panthers optimist football team, police said.
A 15-year-old girl, who is the daughter of football coach Eduardo Barnes, was also hit with a bullet, police said.
None of the injuries are considered life-threatening.
