    McAdam and Kenson Pierre were shot and killed in front of a home on June 19.

    Kenson Pierre, known also as “Short Kidd,” was an aspiring rapper in his neighborhood which was the setting of many of his music videos. McAdam, better known as JBlanco, was an aspiring photographer who often worked with Pierre.

    Kenson Pierre's younger brother Jimmy told NBC 6 he recognized Beetoo Pierre, who he said had stolen from his cousin's home. Jimmy Pierre did not want to provide additional comment.

    "There was some type of beef, some type of disagreement between Beetoo and the victims," said North Miami Police spokesman Neal Cuevas. "This is how he settled the arguments."
