Police Hunt For Gunman In Liberty City Shooting

MIAMI – (CBS4) – A man was shot and killed Saturday night on a Liberty City street. 

Police say a man and a friend had left an apartment complex Saturday and were on their way to a local store when they stopped to get money out of their car.

It was when they stopped to pick up the money from their car near Northwest 60th Street and 7th Avenue shortly before 9 p.m. when a man with a hood over his head and a cloth over his arm shot one of the men in the abdomen.

The man was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where doctors pronounced him dead. Police did not immediately identify the man saying relatives were being informed of his death. 

Meanwhile, the other man who was with him gave police a brief description of the gunman. 

He was six-foot tall wearing a long, black sleeve shirt and a cover shirt that read, “Kansas City Royals.”

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Crimestoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

    Too many questions in this one. Why leave money in a car? Was the deceased robbed? He was obviously executed for something since the other person was not shot. Was it a set up?

      Do you have a car? There is no way you can tell me that you have never left money in your car. Everyone I know leaves money be it $1.00 or $50.00. Try not to be so narrow minded in your thinking.
      The other questions you raise are noteworthy. It does seem like a hit to me.
      I have often left money in my car not large sums but anywhere from $5-$100 dollars and driven up to a convenience store and realized that I left my money in my car.
