A man died after he was shot in front of his car wash business Friday in West Little River, police said.

Miami-Dade Police officers responded shortly after 4 p.m. to the area of Northwest 22nd Avenue and 92nd Street, where they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds.

He later died at the scene, police said. His identity hasn't been released.

Residents told NBC 6 the victim was a man in his 60s who has been washing cars in the neighborhood for a long time.

“That’s just sad. Like, he cared about these people. That’s why I don’t know who would do this to him," said one resident, who wished to remain anonymous.

This shooting comes weeks after another incident at a workplace in South Florida. Rachel Boisette, 27, is accused of shooting the supervisor who fired her from her job at a Lauderhill Metro by T-Mobile store.

Police are still looking for a suspect, who left the scene before officers arrived.

“I feel sad for all of us because we just lost somebody good that would look out for everybody in their neighborhood, like, if your kids went to the store, he would give the kids money, dollars just to go to the store," the neighbor said.
