Neither person lived in Hialeah, but instead they were visiting the home of the victim’s mother when the shooting occurred, according to Zogby. The mother was not home at the time, he added.

Relatives told NBC 6 South Florida Fonseca's mother found her body.

"She was found in a white blanket full of blood," cousin David Lopez said.

Dominguez is being held on no bond, online Miami-Dade Corrections records showed. It was not immediately known whether he has an attorney.

Records showed Dominguez has a lengthy list of prior arrests, including an open case for aggravated battery on an elderly person last month.

"Justice will be served. The same way my family is crying and feeling it, I feel bad for his family, I understand they're probably out there crying too," Lopez said.
