3 Dead, 1 Person in Custody After Southwest Miami-Dade Shooting: Police
Three people are dead and one person is in custody after a shooting Tuesday night in southwest Miami-Dade, police said. Two males and one female were killed, while two more adults and three children were extracted from a back window of 1815 SW 70th Avenue for their safety, Miami-Dade Police said. They were not injured, according to police. NBC 6 spoke with neighbor Lizet Gonzalez.
Authorities are investigating a shooting in the Palmetto Bay area that left one person dead early Saturday morning.
According to Miami-Dade police, the incident happened around 3:30 a.m. on 176th Street and 92nd Avenue.
Friends and coworkers say the man who lived in that home was gunned down on his driveway.
"All of a sudden I heard boom, boom, boom. I thought it was firecrackers," said neighbor Ritchie Roberts.
He said he was sitting on his patio, across the street around 3 a.m., when he heard close to six gunshots.
"And then again. Pop, pop, pop! And I came outside and stood here on my driveway and there was a car with a guy running. He got in it and left."
Roberts told NBC 6 the car was carrying three men inside. It flew out of the block so fast, it left skid marks on the road, he said.
Though police have not yet identified the victim, property records indicate the owner of the home is Frederick K. Duberry.
A company profile for the now inactive Batman and Robin Marketing Group, Inc. also lists Duberry's name and home address.
Coworkers who were at the home to show support said the pain is still too fresh to speak about what happened. They said, though, the victim was a club promoter and believe he was coming home from a party he had been working at Friday night when he was shot.
"He's a good guy. I don't know what he's dealing with," said Roberts.
Those living on the block said they didn't know much about his work life, but did know him as a good neighbor. One had just seen him jogging on the block with his family, something he often did.
"We saw him. We saw his family. They are very good family," said neighbor Soheil Soroushiani. "It's very strange, happening this thing in this area."
Police did not release many details regarding the crime but did confirm they were investigating the shooting.
