A 12-year-old Miami boy is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center after he was abducted, raped and shot in the head by a Hispanic male.

Miami police say the Hispanic boy was abducted off the street around 2 a.m. Saturday in the Brownsville neighborhood of Northwest Miami-Dade County.

The boy was walking down a street when a man pulled up alongside him, forced him into a vehicle, sexually assaulted him, shot him and then pushed him out of the vehicle, WPLG Local News 10 reported.

A bystander heard the boy's screams and took him to a nearby convenience store where an employee called 911.

Local News 10 talked to the Good Samaritan who asked to be identified only as Johnny. He said he was on his bicycle when he heard the boy screaming for help.

Johnny accompanied the child to the Foodland Market at NW 47th Street and 32nd Avenue, where the boy collapsed on the ground.

Johnny, who said he didn't have a phone, noticed the boy was bleeding from a head wound. The boy told him he had been shot.

The child was wearing only a blue t-shirt, blood-stained underwear and socks.

Police are searching for a Hispanic male with long curly hair, about 30 to 40 years old, driving a black sedan.

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

Combs wore a clear face shield over designer glasses and black latex gloves. He was dressed in a multicolor Coogi sweater and designer sneakers. The middle aged mogul arrived wearing a face mask which he soon removed to greet excited Overtown residents.

The Sean Combs foundation along with Headliner Market Groups and local charity Teens Exercising Extraordinary Success (T.E.E.S) provided rental assistance to families struggling to pay their bills amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Local activist Michael Gardner handed out gift bags filled with essentials such as hygiene products.

Earlier this year, his company, Combs Enterprises, launched the "Our Fair Share" program, an online platform dedicated to helping minority small business owners through the economic hardships brought on by the lockdowns across the U.S.

Rapper Trina has come under fire for urging Miami's Mayor to extend the curfew in an effort to keep looting "animals" off the streets.

Speaking to former rapper Trick Daddy on Miami's 99 Jamz Radio, Trina was asked for her opinion on the ongoing violent protests sweeping the U.S.

Trina, ran name Katrina Laverne Taylor, took aim at the lawless looters, who are using a tragic murder as a distraction to vandalize and steal from hard working business owners -- many of whom are Black.

The "Pull Over" rapper called on Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez to extend the city's curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. to help Miami police clear the streets.

"Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo," she said.

"Lock them up at 5pm so the streets can be nice and clean, that's how I feel."

Trina, 45, voiced the frustration felt by many in the Black community who believe the protests have been hijacked by criminals who don't care about George Floyd, the Black Minnesota man who was killed in police custody on May 25.

She went on to explain a friend's business had been destroyed by looters and vandals and she also insisted that many of them were "fake" activists.

"Half of y'all marching are not even caring about this man," she raged, adding, "We can't bring back nobody lives that has been taken away, whether it's from the police or the hands of another civilian... You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can't bring back my little brother's life; his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man."

Trina's comments upset a lot of fans and followers, who took to social media to "cancel" her.

One critic was actress and singer Masika Kalysha, who tweeted:

"U OWE ME & EVERYONE ELSE AN APPOLOGY FOR THAT S**T U DEFECATED OUT THEM BLACK A** LIPS. How u wrong but prideful? I used to look up to u! U inspired my 1st single! I am ashamed that I thought u were someone to aspire to be like [sic]."

The tweet prompted Trina to respond:

"@masikakalysha I will address the people. But u dumb a** b**ch I don't owe u s**t. U can eat a duck diet bag. [The f*ck] is wrong with u."

The former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star fired back:

"This old a** crumb tryna race me barefoot ill-equipped outta shape & unfit. No match. Yo poor thumbs justa shakin tryin thinka some whitty to say [sic]. THE WHOLE WORLD IS DRAGGIN U... U NEED ATTENTION...! ADDRESS THE MILLIONS OF PPL U LET DOWN."
