Teen dies at hospital after fatal shooting in Miami Gardens

Police say a call came in reporting the shooting. When officers arrived, they found the wounded teen. He was airlifted to a hospital, but he died on the way, officers say.

Its a tragedy, said Carlos Austin, a spokesman for Miami Gardens police. This is someone who hasnt had a chance to live his life.

The football league South Florida Express identified the teen as Josh Ancrum, one of their teammates on the 7and7 football team. Josh, the group adds, was a sought-after football player at Miami Norland High School.

Investigative leads took us to this neighborhood where officers met the subject who was carrying a rifle and a handgun and a gun battle ensued and the man is now deceased, said Miami-Dade Police spokeswoman, Sgt. Erin Alfonso.

Today we are saddened to find out about the passing of one of our current players. Josh, youre funny and charismatic attitude will forever live in our hearts. You will never be forgotten and will be missed, the post on Twitter read.

Chopper4 over the scene spotted what looked to be a car on the street in front of a home which appears to have run over a recycling bin. Both the windshield and hood had bullet holes. A rifle was on the nearby sidewalk.

Just having him as a teammate really motivated me, Jarvis Browlee told NBC6 of the Miami Norland junior and cornerback. Just to have him on the other side of me knowing that he was gonna stop the other side and I was gonna lock the other side.

Austin, the Miami Gardens police spokesman, said that the people inside the home were being questioned.

Just talked about this earlier today. We are going backwards. Help me understand. If a woman has a miscarriage and it is believed that she is the cause, she can be charged with 2nd degree murder. How can this be proven? Convicted felons charged with murder can not vote. Sooooo, women will lose their right to vote. Plus, who determines if my miscarriage is self-induced? Is there a battery of tests much like there were during the Salem Witch Trials? When will blacks become fully realized human beings with rights? Marching with vagina hats and walking hand in hand singing spirituals is not enough. We need more will power to change things. Thinking out loud.
