Police are looking into a shooting that left one man dead in Northwest Miami-Dade Thanksgiving night.

The shooting occurred just after 8 p.m. at 2150 NW 110 Street, according to Miami-Dade Police.

The victim, who's family identified him as Craig Garvin, was shot execution-style on his front porch after he opened the door to two men who fired at him and took off, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Authorities have not yet said whether the shooting was targeted, but Garvin does have a lengthy criminal record that includes drug possession, burglary, battery and assault with a firearm.

"My husband didn't have enemies, he didn't have enemies," Turner said.

Turner and the victim's mother, Marilynn Garvin, are now pleading with the community to help them find the killers.

"Help us bring justice to this family, we are hurting now," Marilynn Garvin said. "Please, somebody help us."

Turner added: "Please, ony day this could be your family, your child, your son, anybody."

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