Miami police are investigating a shooting involving multiple victims that occurred early Wednesday morning.
The shooting was reported around midnight along Northwest 62nd Street and 13th Avenue.
According to Miami Police Officer Kenia Fallat, officers arrived at the scene to find a female victim with an apparent gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Family members later identified the victim as 17-year-old Toni Chester.
She said two men in their mid-20s who had also been shot were driven independently to JMH. They are both listed in stable condition.
Relatives at the scene told Local 10 News that they call Chester “Suga,” and say she is a relative of well-known Miami rapper Trina.
Family friend Sparky Cunningham confirmed to Local 10 News’ Roy Ramos that the teen isn’t from the Liberty City area and wasn’t sure what she was doing there.
“I am puzzled,” Cunningham said. “It was sad because I’ve known her from when she was a kid.”
Meanwhile, relatives told Local 10 News the victim was there with her boyfriend, who is said to be one of the men now fighting for his life after he too was shot.
“I don’t know what she was doing up on this end, I didn’t know she be on this end,” Cunningham said.
Trina has not yet released any statement on the shooting.
The motive behind the shooting remains under investigation.
