RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — A woman is dead after multiple shots were fired and a car crashed in Riviera Beach. Police are still piecing together the crime scene spread across multiple blocks.

The shooting occurred Tuesday afternoon along the 2300 block of Avenue E.

Neighbors shared their frustrations.

"It's a tragedy," Minnie Grimes said. "It's tragic. It's devastating to the neighborhood. We don't want that happening to our young people at all. It's a tragedy."

Much of the focus was just off of Broadway Avenue. A police source told WPTV the shots fired involved teens near Avenue E and West 23rd Street.

Cynthia Oziros said when she drove up to her community, all she could say is, "Not again."

"There's always something going on in this neighborhood," she said. "So, I was thinking I can't get into my house."

The three people in the vehicle that crashed were taken to St. Mary's Medical Center.

The incident is under investigation.
