Two gay men and a lesbian were shot and wounded this week in Miami in a bizarre drive-by shooting. The Miami-Dade Police Department said it was not investigating the incident as a hate crime.
Around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, men riding one or more all-terrain vehicles opened fire on a car with the two male victims inside and then fled, according to police.
One of the men was "struck in the head," the other was "grazed in the head" and a woman sitting outside her home nearby was "stuck by a stray bullet," police said.
