MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – On Thursday, the police took into custody a 41-year-old woman for allegedly providing her 15-year-old son with a firearm, which he used to shoot two individuals at a park in northwest Miami-Dade. Authorities stated that Isesha Johnson’s son also narrowly missed shooting a third person.
The incident occurred shortly after 10:30 p.m. on July 18 at Olinda Park, situated at 2101 NW 51st St. in the Brownsville area of the county, as reported by Miami-Dade police.
The victims sustained gunshot wounds to their right arm and right thigh, and another person narrowly escaped being hit, with a bullet piercing through an article of clothing on her head.
According to the arrest report, Johnson, a resident of Miami’s Liberty City neighborhood, witnessed her son burying the gun upon his return home after the shooting.
Her son was apprehended by officers on Thursday, who then arrested Johnson in Miami Gardens shortly after he informed them that she had provided him with the firearm.
Johnson is facing charges of three counts of attempted murder, along with one count each of being an accessory after the fact, minor in possession of a firearm with guardian approval, tampering with physical evidence, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
As of Friday morning, she was being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.
