PALMETTO BAY (CBSMiami) – The investigation continues into the murder of a well-known club promoter who was shot to death in front of his Palmetto Bay 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, puzzled why anyone would kill the father of two.
“Its Father’s Day you know for them to lose their father a day before father’s day that’s unfathomable,” said Darriene Benton, his best friend and business partner. “We lost a real father in a day where there are a lot of dead beat dads not their parents period. We lost a very good father. He was a father to a lot of people in the community.”
Duberry’s face book page filled with people posting their condolences Saturday. Many posted photos of pictures with Duberry during happier times.
Back at home his neighbors also spoke very highly of him.
“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.
Police have not released an official statement or any information about the investigation.
