PALMETTO BAY (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade police are investigating a murder mystery in Palmetto Bay after a well-known club promoter was killed outside his own home.
CBS4 News has learned the house is owned by Frederick Duberry, a music and club promoter who ran his own business.
Neighbors reported hearing gunfire around 3:00 a.m. in the area of SW 176th Street and 92nd Avenue.
At the home Saturday afternoon, someone quietly washed away blood on the driveway of the home where Duberry was shot and killed. Those who knew Duberry closely are still in shock and unwilling to talk about what happened to him before the sun came up Saturday.
Neighbors, however, did talk about what they saw and heard.
“I heard six shots. There was three, then a hesitation and then three more,” said neighbor Richie Roberts. “I saw a car skid right in front of my house with a guy jumping in the back and then they were gone.”
Those same neighbors said they didn’t know much about Duberry except that he was a good neighbor.
“I used to see him, he always took care of his yard he was a great neighbor really nice guy I’m really sorry to hear that,” said neighbor Kate Howell.
“This is a tragedy, just horrible. It’s really bad,” said a third neighbor.
Neighbors said Duberry had a wife and children.
Police have not released an official statement or any information about the investigation.
If you know anything about the shooting, you are urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
