Miami-Dade Police officials said officers found the woman fatally shot just after 7 a.m. Tuesday in the alleyway in the area of Northwest 26th Avenue and 95th Street.

Police haven't released the 25-year-old woman's identity. Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers identified her as Wendy Daniel.

According to an arrest report, a surveillance camera in the area, which is known for prostitution activity, captured the murder.

The footage showed Donaldson and the woman arrive in the alleyway in his grey sedan and remain parked there for about 26 minutes, the report said.

At one point, the passenger door opened and the woman, who was partially nude, fell out and onto the ground, the report said.

Donaldson, who also appeared to be nude, got out of the car, grabbed the woman as she was trying to stand up, and shot her once in the head with a handgun, killing her, the report said.

After the shooting, Donaldson got in his car and fled the scene, the report said.

Detectives later found Donaldson at his Miami Beach apartment, where he was arrested with help from SWAT and K-9s, neighbors said.

"I heard 'pow-pow-pow,' I thought it was electrical but then I saw SWAT and I thought wow, this is something different, get down get down!" neighbor Barbara Castro said.

Donaldson was being held without bond, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
