MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Friends and family will hold a candle light vigil Thursday evening for a young man murdered in Miramar.
Joey Delancy, 23, was shot to death in the driveway of a home near County Line Road and NW 2nd Avenue on Wednesday. Witnesses reported hearing multiple shots.
Witnesses told CBS4 that the suspects, in a red car, drove up to the house as Delancy was coming out. They said Delancy had been inside visiting a friend. During a confrontation with those from the red car, Delancy was shot and killed.
Police said the gunman, or gunmen, sped off in a red Nissan Altima after the shooting.
A short time after the shooting police surrounded the city’s civic center complex at 2300 Civic Center Place, about seven miles north of the murder scene, and detained two males in front of the library. A third person was also questioned. All three were released but remain “persons of interest,” according to police.
The vigil for Delancy, a working single parent who had custody of his two children ages 4 and 6, is set for 7:30 p.m. in the 6100 block of SW 41st Street.
