    Police are searching for suspects in a fatal Miami shooting. NBC 6's Gilma Avalos has the story. (Published Sunday, Apr 13, 2014)

    A man is dead after an apparent homicide in Miami, according to police.

    Miami Police said the man was shot multiple times in the area of Northwest 6th Avenue and 46th Street.

    Police are now looking for two suspects. No further information was immediately available.

    Neighbors in the area said the shooting has robbed them of their sense of security.

    "It makes me sick, it really makes me sick," said neighbor Sharon Green.

    Green said she saw the victim and noticed he had a familiar face. She said he was a man who often strolled down her block.

    "He always walked down this way on Saturday," she said. "He always dressed nice."

    Other neighbors said they are appalled something like this happened in broad daylight next to a busy highway.

    "That's what's shocking, in broad daylight," said longtime resident Minnie Brown. "I can't believe it."

    Brown said she stepped out to go to the corner store and within minutes the place was covered in crime scene tape.

    "Twenty minutes and I come back and this is going on, and I pull up one of the police officers and he says it's a homicide," Brown said.

    Anyone with information on this shooting is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers anonymously at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
