MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The family of a man who was died as the result of a shooting more than eight months is asking for the public’s help to catch the person responsible.
Victor Walker, 36, was gunned down April 6th in front of the Dolphin Market at NW 46th Street and NW 23rd Court.
During the course of their investigation, Miami-Dade police were never able to come up with a description of the gunman. The do know that gun used to kill Walker was a high powered rifle.
Walker was the father of two girls.
“It took a lot away from me, I don’t know what happened, I don’t know who would want to hurt Victor,” said Walker’s grandmother Rosetta Simmons.
Simmons said she along with the police want answers.
“It’s hard because I’m getting older and I don’t want to leave here without knowing that they haven’t anything about Victor,” said Simmons. “He was a good father, a very good father to his daughters.”
The night of the shooting Walker was shot and killed and another woman was wounded. Simmons said anyone who knows anything about the shooting should go to the police.
“I want to know why. Victor didn’t have any enemies. If we could find him, we can keep him from doing what he did to Victor to anybody else,” said Simmons.
Simmons said Walker was a street preacher and may have been doing just that when he was shot.
“I just can’t imagine what happened. I can’t imagine Victor was saying. He was probably saying ‘Lord have mercy on them’ and himself too,” said Simmons.
Miami-Dade police Detective Javier Pineda said the night of the shooting it’s not clear who was being targeted or why. Pineda said people should not be afraid to come forward if they have information.
“Everyone has a loved one and they have the right to know as to the reason why their loved one killed,” said Pineda.
“Please come forward, step up to the plate as you say and tell what happened to my grandson,” said Simmions.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
