Authorities say two people have died and seven people are injured after a shooting in a residential area in northwest Miami.

Police spokeswoman Kenia Alfonso says authorities do not have anyone in custody. She says when paramedics arrived on Friday night in Liberty City, many of those who had been shot were lying in the street.

Lt Ignatius Carroll with Miami Fire Rescue says two people were killed and six were taken to hospitals with serious injuries. Dozens of police cruisers were swarming the area and blocked off streets after the shooting.

Authorities didn't immediately release the identities of any of the shooting victims, but did say none were children.
