Surveillance Footage Released of Northeast Miami-Dade Synagogue Shooting

Prosecutors released the surveillance footage Thursday of a shooting outside of a South Florida synagogue back in July that left a man injured.

The shooting happened on July 28 outside of the Young Israel of Greater Miami in northeast Miami-Dade.

In the footage, a man gets out of a car in front of the synagogue. He then starts shooting at another man, who police say was unlocking the place of worship for evening prayers.

The alleged shooter, 30-year-old Carlints St. Louis, fired nine shots, eight of which struck 68-year-old Yosef Lipshutz, prosecutors said.

Lipshutz was shot in the legs and was hospitalized. He is a member of the synagogue, but it's unclear whether that played a role in the shooting.

St. Louis pleaded not guilty of attempted murder with a firearm, aggravated battery and discharging a firearm from a vehicle. He is set for trial early next month.
