A pregnant woman said she believes a fight she had with a man escalated to the weekend shooting in Opa-locka that left three injured.

The victims of the shooting – aged 16, 26 and 27 – remain hospitalized in stable condition on Sunday after the Saturday night shooting. Police believe the gunman used an AK-47.

Officers are searching for three suspects. The suspect armed with the AK-47 was described by police as a black male wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Deandra Bradley, who is seven months pregnant, said she fought with a man who was harassing her by recording her with his cell phone. Soon after, shots rang out at the Glorieta Gardens Apartments complex near Northwest 135th Street and 30th Avenue.

“He put his phone in my face. I slapped the phone out of my face. He tried to stop me and when he stopped me I stood up and we fought," Bradley said.

Bradley said the man then tried to throw a television through her window. She believes the bullets in the shooting were meant to strike her. Police, however, have not yet identified a motive for the shooting.

"I'm mad as hell," Bradley added. "He needs to go to jail."

Bradley said she knows the man who she said is a suspect as someone she knew as a teenager. Police have not yet said if Bradley's fight or if the man with whom she fought are connected to the shooting.

Bradley suggested the victims in the shooting were not related to the fight. She did not identify the man to WTVJ.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
