Miami Police have issued the arrest warrant for Craig Mitchell for the murder of Robert Labranche, also known as “Bizzle.”

Labranche was shot on Oct. 15th at the Ben & Ben’s Car Wash at 770 NW 54th Street. Two of Labranche’s young children were inside his car just feet away when he was murdered but did not see it happen and neither child was hurt.
