One person was killed and three others, including a baby girl, were injured in a shooting in a Miami neighborhood, police said.

The shooting happened in the area of Northwest 18th Avenue and 50th Street late Thursday, shortly before midnight, according to Miami police.

The child was grazed by a bullet and two adults were struck but are in stable condition, said Miami police spokeswoman Officer Kenia Fallat. Miami Fire Rescue took all three to Jackson Memorial Hospital Ryder Trauma Center.

The fourth person shot succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

Police said they are working to determine what happened. They said they don’t have information on suspects. Officers have not disclosed the name of the victims.

CBS4 reported the deceased man is 21-year-old Anton Walker. Vivian Mack, a neighbor in the area, told CBS4 that shootings are common.

“These guns kept shooting, like a machine gun. They kept going on and on and on,” she told CBS4. “This is something that goes on in our neighborhood quite a lot and I mean a lot. We just had another shootout about a week ago and they shot up my husband’s car and this neighborhood, I’m ready to leave.”
