Teen shot in Miami-Dade’s Pinewood area, police officers say

A 16-year-old male was shot Thursday night in Northwest Miami-Dade's Pinewood area, according to Miami-Dade police officers. 

Detective Argemis Colome said officers responded to a Citgo gas station at 103rd Street and Northwest 12th Avenue.   

The teen was in a car when the car got shot at. A friend drove him to the North Shore Medical Center at 1100 NW 95 St.

Crime scene investigators marked at least six locations for bullet casings on the ground at the gas station. 

The area is dangerous. Last year, 6-year-old King Carter, a Van E. Blanton Elementary School first-grader, was shot and killed nearby at the Blue Lake Village apartment complex. Two years ago, a man died and another was injured at the same gas station.  

This is a developing story.
