City of Miami Police on Wednesday said an arrest warrant was issued for the murder of local rapper Bizzle, who was killed in a shooting outside a carwashing business in Liberty City earlier this month.
Police issued the warrant for Craig Mitchell, who they said should be considered armed and dangerous.
They said officers patrolling the area heard gunshots and after a search, they found Labranche's body on the ground in the corner of the carwash.
After Labranche's death, the scene in Liberty City became chaotic when the victims’ relatives crossed the crime scene tape, and police had to use force to restrain a man and woman. They were later released and no charges were filed, police said.
"This is someone that was definitely loved, not just by his family but by his community," Miami Police spokesman Wilie Moreno had said.
Moreno said the victim became involved in an argument with someone at the business before he was shot and killed. His son and daughter, both under age 10, were in his car, but they did not see the incident, Moreno said.
