Police Search for Answers in Teen's Killing in Cutler Bay

Police are looking for information on a 16-year-old's killing in Cutler Bay.

Roberto Javier Morga Jr. died from an apparent gunshot wound Friday night in the roadway in front of Cutler Ridge Park, according to the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Officials have limited information about the homicide but say they observed a 2015 black Nissan Sentra parked near the area just before the victim was found dead. Family members say Morga was found shot in his car.

"I know that my brother deserves justice because c'mon now. He was only 16 years old," Jennifer Morga said. "He barely had just started his life. It's not fair for someone to just take a kid's life."

Anyone with information should call MDPD Det. B. Jurado at 305-471-2400 or Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477). 

If a tip lead to an arrest, the tipster may be eligible for a reward of up to $3,000.
