Somber Tribute to Woman Killed in Golden Glades Park & Ride Shooting

Hundreds of loved ones gathered together Wednesday to remember 21-year-old Jasmine Dixon who died Sunday after a shooting at the Golden Glades Park & Ride.

The group held a candlelight vigil and walked to Gibson Park where they released balloons with messages for Dixon.

"Overall this has been hard. I don't wish this upon no one," said Centrella Adams, the victim's sister.

Loved ones at the vigil call Dixon a free-spirit. "Very sweet, nice, loved to dress up, do her hair and makeup," Adams said.

The 21-year-old was killed after she was struck by a car that was trying to flee to safety when someone opened fire. Dixon was among a group of women who had just been dropped off by a private bus service around 1 a.m. in the parking lot when someone in a car started shooting before speeding away, according to Miami-Dade Police Department spokesperson Alvaro Zabaleta.

"This isn't the first friend that I lost to gun violence. I feel it's ridiculous that I eeping losing people dear to me to gun violence," said Alyssianna Baca, Dixon's friend. 

Four other women were injured during the chaotic incident.

Investigators are searching for the driver and occupants, if any, of a white or silver vehicle, possibly a Hyundai or KIA, with damage to the right front and passenger side as well as extensive damage to the right front tire on the passenger side.

Miami-Dade police detectives are urging the community to come forward with information about the shooting. If you have any information, call Miami-Dade Crime Stopper at 305-471-TIPS.
