HIALEAH (CBSMiami) – The search is on for a gunman following a deadly shooting in Hialeah.

SWAT teams surrounded a Hialeah apartment building near 1480 W. 46 Street just after 7 p.m. Friday looking for a gunman who showed he wasn’t afraid to shoot

Shamira Pisciotti said the gunman shot both her parents,  68-year-old Samira and 78-year-old Italo Pisciotti, who were  property managers at the apartment complex.

“I heard about 15-20 shots and so I went outside and my neighbors were screaming that my parents have been shot,” said Pisciotti.

Pisciotti and her fiancée said the shooting was the result of some sort of complaint.

“They got complaints from some neighbor that a situation was going on they went upstairs to do their duty as property managers,”said Pisciotti’s fiancée, who did not want to be identified.

“My mom was dead the moment that she was shot and my dad still had a pulse when I got to him, but by the time I got downstairs police were already getting ready to go in because they need to clear the scene before they let EMS in. I’m sure my dad passed away shortly after.”

“People inside the building were told to stay in their apartments while other worried families arrived at the scene after hearing others  may have been shot.  Police carefully went through the building trying to rush families to safety and search for the shooter.

Several agencies aided Hialeah in the search.

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
