1 dead in gang-related shooting in Miami Gardens, police say

One person died Saturday night in a shooting in Miami Gardens, police said. 

The victim was shot in the passenger seat of a vehicle near Northwest 183rd Street and Northwest Seventh Avenue, police said.

The driver of that vehicle then drove the victim to Oaks Apartments at Northwest 183rd Street and Northwest 27th Avenue where he was discovered. 

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue pronounced the victim dead at the scene, police said. 

The slaying appears to be consistent with a gang-related shooting, police said.
