A Jewish man was shot outside a synagogue near North Miami Beach in what police are investigating as a possible hate crime.

Yosef Noach ben Leah Tzivyah, aged 69, was waiting for Mincha outside the Young Israel of Greater Miami synagogue on Sunday evening when a vehicle reportedly drove past and opened fire.

The man was reportedly wounded in the leg, and treated by a volunteer of Hatzalah who was present.

He was taken to hospital in a stable condition.

More to come.
