MIAMI (AP) - Police say two gunmen opened fire on a group of young people sitting in an open area of an apartment complex in Miami-Dade County, killing a 13-year-old and wounding four others.

The shooting happened Monday night when the gunmen approached the victims with what police believe were high powered rifles.

According to police, five people were struck. The gunmen fled.

Fire rescue crews took four victims to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Friends of another victim took him to another hospital. The 13-year-old died at the hospital. Police didn’t release the conditions of the other victims who range in age from 22 to 28.
