Miami-Dade Police released shocking video of the shooting of a Palmetto Bay man Monday in the hopes of solving his murder.
Frederick Duberry, 44, was killed on June 16, 2012, outside his home on the 17500 block of Southwest 92nd Avenue.
After a late night on the job, Duberry pulled up to his driveway where the surveillance camera that overlooks his garage caught his final moments.
The victim can be seen walking out of a truck as a man in a scully hat runs in front of him and points what appears to be an assault rifle. He then opens fire.
"All of a sudden I heard a boom, boom!," neighbor Richard Roberts said the day the shooting happened.
A number of shots were heard by neighbors just after 3:30 a.m. Miami-Dade Police say the man in the video left Duberry for dead and ran to a waiting car, which can be seen on the upper left side of the surveillance video.
Roberts said he was sitting on his patio at his home across the street when he saw a car speed off.
"I came outside and stood right here on my driveway and I saw a guy running and he got in and left," Roberts said.
More than nine months later, Duberry's car is still parked in the same spot he pulled into on that fateful night. It's a reminder to neighbors who cared about him that the crime has not yet been solved.
Duberry was a husband and father of two. His children would not get to hug their dad on the Sunday after he died, Father's Day.
The family made a plea on Tuesday morning, asking the public to come forward with any information that may help bring them closure.
"If you were brave enough to take his life, you should be brave enough to come forward," mother Margaret John said.
Duberry's son, Frederick Duberry Jr., said his father dedicated his life to his kids.
"My dad was the best, he would say yes to anyone if you asked him a question, he used to teach me the ropes in life," he said. "He always used to be tough on me but now I know why, he was just preparing me for that day when he left."
Gloria Hall, Duberry's girlfrined for more than 20 years, was inside the home with the couple's 6-year-old daughter when the shooting happened.
"How could someone just come to our home?" she said. "It's just so personal."
