A 3-year-old boy was fatally shot at a birthday party in a home near Miami on Saturday night, police said.
The toddler, identified by cops as Elijah LaFrance, was among two people shot at an Airbnb rental in the Golden Glades neighborhood that was being used to host a party, CBS Miami reported.
The child was taken to the hospital after the 8 p.m. shooting, but could not be saved, the report said.
“Oh God, he is still on my mind,” LaFrance’s uncle, Adrian Annestor told the news outlet. “I was just playing with him.”
“I wish it could have been me because I’ve lived long enough. He couldn’t even say mom and dad,” he said.
The other victim, a 21-year-old woman, was hospitalized in stable condition.
Witnesses told the news outlet that dozens of shots were fired from a suspect who fled in a car.
No arrests were made as of early Monday and police are seeking the public’s help for any potential leads in the case.
