MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami police are hunting a man on the lam after he allegedly shot his wife in front of her children, and left her to die in a pool of blood.
Police are trying to find 42-year-old Bertram Clark, last seen running out of the apartment of 25-year-old Shanquendra Quenishea Williams in the 1200 block of NW First place in Miami, shortly after midnight Monday morning.
Miami police spokesperson Det. Willie Moreno said Clark and Williams had argued before he left her apartment. Williams apparently called police and Clark, who lives nearby, returned to her apartment, angry about the call.
Investigators say Clark apparently pulled out his gun and pistol-whipped Williams while her children watched. As his anger grew, police said he used the pistol to shoot her, multiple times, with the children in the room, before running out.
Miami police say they were responded to calls about shots fired at the apartment when callers reported a women had been shot. Detective Moreno said that when officers arrived, they found Williams lying dead in a pool of blood
On February 6, 2012, at approximately 12:30 A.M., officers responded to the area of 1232 NW 1 Place, reference to shots fired. Within minutes, additional calls were received regarding a female shot. When officers arrived, the victim was observed lying in a pool of blood and unresponsive. She died on the scene.
Police are searching for Clark, who is black, 5’10” tall, and weighs about 230 pounds. They say he uses the nickname “Nobie”, and warned that he should be considered armed and dangerous.
