1 Dead in Overtown Shooting: Miami Police

No further details were given.

A SWAT investigation turned up no suspects after a man was found dead in Overtown and his suspected killer was believed to be barricaded in an apartment complex.

Police were at the scene at 1132 NW 2nd Ave. Saturday morning. A SWAT team spent hours preparing to enter the apartment, but once they did, they did not find the suspect.

The building was evacuated before SWAT officers went in looking for the suspect, but some neighbors said the suspect had left hours before, by 1 a.m. when the victim was shot to death.

"Somebody that I used to go to school with got shot and was killed and the guy was seen walking off with the AK," one neighbor said.

Miami Police continue to search for the suspect.
