A man was taken into custody after another man was shot and killed Sunday evening at a home in southwest Miami-Dade.

Miami-Dade Police said officers responded to a Shot Spotter call around 5:30 p.m. near the 10600 block of 170th Street.

When officers arrived, they found 32-year-old Edwin Boyce Molina suffering from gunshot wounds. He was taken to Jackson South Trauma Center where he died from his injuries.

Police said preliminary information showed Molina and a 26-year-old man had been involved in some sort of altercation that led to shots being fired.

The 26-year-old was taken into custody and later brought to a local hospital to receive an involuntary medical evaluation, police said.

“He's not arrested, he's detained right now,” Miami-Dade Police spokesman Louis Sierra said. “He's being questioned because, again, we're trying to figure out exactly what happened in this altercation and why a firearm was presented and obviously fired.”

Police say preliminary information revealed that an altercation between two men occurred before shots were fired and are awaiting a search warrant to search the property. NBC 6's Alyssa Hyman has the story.

A neighbor’s Ring video captured someone screaming “call the police.”

Families who live nearby said they were unsettled by the crime scene.

“To come home at this time and see this and not be able to go into your home is very nerve-racking and very uncomfortable,” one neighbor said. “I just want people to know it’s not a bad neighborhood. It’s very safe.”

Police said the man who is detained lives at the residence.

The investigation is ongoing.
