Police say they received a 911 call about an injured person at a Little River park. When officers went there, they found a teenager who had been shot in the abdomen and was heading to the hospital in a Honda.

Officers and paramedics took over and took the teen to the Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died Wednesday night, the Miami-Dade Police Department says.

Police, who found the teen at 8050 NW Miami Ct. after 4:30 p.m. in an unincorporated part of Miami-Dade outside the Miami city limits, no information on suspects released.

Late Thursday evening, detectives say they are seeking help in the case. If you have any information, call CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).

The teen’s mother called her son “very, very smart.”

“We owe this family a little peace, a little closure,” Miami-Dade police spokesman Angel Rodriguez said at the scene.
