MIAMI (CBS4) – Terry Brown lived his last minutes confined in a wheelchair, the victim of violence. Earlier this week, violence came again, and instead of crippling him, it took his life. Thursday afternoon, Brown’s family made a tearful plea to find his killer.
Police say Brown was at NW 62nd Street and 12th Parkway in Liberty City on Sunday, having a conversation with someone, when he was suddenly shot and killed.
The family wants someone to come forward with answers.
Police say Brown was in a wheelchair the day he was murdered. Just months ago, he was hurt in a drive-by shooting. But this shooting took his life.
His stepdaughter has a message for the killer.
“To turn themselves in because, my little brothers don’t have a daddy no more,” said the stepdaughter.
“Terry loved his children very much. Whoever shot him, they took him away from his kids,” said another relative.
“It’s just so hurtful to see a man in a wheelchair and for someone to come up to him and did what they did to him like that,” Brown’s stepdaughter said.
Police say they don’t believe Brown was the intended target. His family wants the community to cooperate with police.
“They are not your enemies. You are all your worst enemies out here,” said Karen Clark Hadley, Brown’s sister.
