One man was killed and another male injured in a shooting outside a Kwik Stop near the North Miami Beach and northeast Miami-Dade border Tuesday night, police said.
Investigators said there was a shooting between two vehicles outside the Kwik Stop at 18198 NE 19th Ave. at about 8:45 p.m.
Police identified the victims as 20-year-old Terrance Greene and 21-year-old Horatio Philmore, both of Miami. Philmore was left dead in a four-door sedan at the scene. Medics rushed Greene to the hospital, and police said they are looking for the second vehicle involved in the shooting.
Pastor Mark Truman said the Philmore family is "very distraught." He told NBC 6 that the family was headed to Georgia to bury Philmore's grandmother this week and that the man would have turned 22 on Thursday.
Truman also said Greene, who remains in the hospital, was shot in the hand.
Roger Delgado was inside the convenience store when two people involved rushed in and pleaded for help. They urgently asked for someone to call 911, he said.
“And I went outside to see the car and there was a guy in the passenger side, dead,” Delgado said.
Store manager Sanjoy Saha closed his business for five hours while police examined the scene. He reopened at 6 a.m. Wednesday but said he never expected a murder to happen in the area.
"It's surprising you know," he said. "This is the first time I saw over here. I am in this neighborhood almost eight years, but I never saw that happen in this area."
Police hauled off the sedan as evidence early Wednesday, as they continue to investigate the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
