David McNamara’s wife has been gone for a week now.
"Mornings are the time that I miss her the most, because that's when I'm alone,” he said Friday.
For a week he has been waking up in an empty bed and driving to work without his best friend – Linda, his wife of 33 years. He says he most misses having her to talk with.
Their final conversation was tragic.
"I heard ‘Pop pop pop, get down, get down, get down’ and she said ‘Mac, call 911, I've been shot,” he said.
Last Friday at about 12:30 a.m. several bullets were fired at their home on Southwest 14th Street in Pembroke Pines. Police said Linda McNamara, 61, was shot as she looked out their bedroom window to see what was happening.
She was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital where she died from her injuries, according to police.
The McNamaras have two adult children.
"I always said I joined the Coast Guard to rescue beautiful women, but I would add the only one I ever rescued was my wife,” David McNamara said.
The couple met in Michigan while David McNamara was on duty. Linda was the girl with a beautiful smile, who David rescued from a small town life. They became inseparable.
As police try to determine a motive behind the shooting, they have released surveillance video of a small, light-colored car which they say drove past the home several times when the shooting happened.
Police said they believe the driver or passengers may have information that could help them solve this case.
Pembroke Pines Police urge anyone with information on the incident to call them at 954-431-2200, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
