Detectives suspect the Golden Glades shooting may be related to a nearby car accident
A 16-year-old and an adult were shot and murdered Tuesday night while their car was driving past a northwest Miami-Dade elementary school. Around 10 p.m. that night, an unidentified suspect opened fire on Northwest 6th Avenue, close to 151st Street. The area is known as the Golden Glades neighborhood.
Miami-Dade Police officers arrived at the location of the gunshot in NW Miami-Dade at about 5 a.m., where they started investigating the Golden Glades shooting incident.
Here's what has been revealed so far about the Golden Glades shooting:
Multiple victims suspects unknown
Police in Miami-Dade County have reported that at least one individual, and perhaps more, opened fire on a white BMW automobile containing four occupants. Shots rang out, striking the driver and front seat passenger. The two patients were transferred to a local hospital but tragically passed away from their wounds.
The victims have been identified as Luis Castro, 16, and Jevon Bernard, 20. The third passenger in the vehicle required medical attention at the scene, but the fourth was unharmed. This is not the first time someone has opened fire on a random car.
Police investigate possible connection to SUV accident
While combing the site for clues, police looked into an accident that could have something to do with the gGolden Glades shooting. Fire officials think it may have been related to an incident that took place under an overpass nearby Biscayne Gardens Elementary School. Authorities believe the SUV's driver may have some important clues to the crime.
The BMW had many gunshot holes on its side, and various evidence markers could be seen on the ground in a surveillance video. An anonymous witness claims he was asleep when he heard what he initially thought were truck noises but turned out to be gunshots. No arrests have been made by police as of Wednesday afternoon.
