The man, who was not identified, was shot outside the Young Israel of Greater Miami synagogue in North Miami Beach at around 6:30 p.m., the Miami-Dade Police Department told Fox News on Monday.
Investigators said the man was walking toward the entrance of the synagogue when a black Chevy Impala drove by and then "circled around" a second time before the driver "exited the vehicle and opened fire, striking [the man] several times in the lower extremity." Officials have not released a description of the suspected shooter.
The man was transported to a nearby hospital, and police said he was "expected to be in stable condition."
Authorities said it's too early to determine whether the shooting will be classified as a hate crime, but authorities are investigating.
"In order to classify a crime a hate crime, there are several elements that need to be present," a Miami-Dade Police spokesperson told Fox News. "And that’s what investigators are looking into as we speak."
