Investigators say Alvarez-Hernandez was shot at approximately 2:45 a.m. Sunday in the parking lot of the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant near Miami International Airport.
The restaurant, which was closed at the time of the shooting, is known to be a popular hangout spot, WSVN reported.
Alvarez-Hernandez was hit by the bullet after a fight broke out between two groups of men in the parking lot. One of the men grabbed a gun from a vehicle and started shooting, the television station reported.

Officers were not immediately notified about the shooting, the station reported, adding that police were contacted only after Alvarez-Hernandez's friend took her to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
"It is infuriating and tragic that a young woman with so much promise could lose her life in such a senseless way; victim of an indiscriminate bullet that should never have been fired," Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, tweeted in response to the news. "My deepest condolences to Ana’s family during this unbearable time."
