MIRAMAR (CBSMiami) — The family of a man gunned down outside his Miramar home faced the public Monday afternoon in hopes that someone will come forward with information that will lead to the killer.
Gavin Bromfield, 24, was shot and killed in front of his Miramar home in the early morning hours of August 3rd.
His brother, Bryan Bromfield, broke down at Monday’s news conference as he appealed to the public for tips about this brother’s murder. The family and Miramar Police an increase in the reward to $8,000.
“Gavin didn’t have a violent bone in his body,” said Howard Rye, Gavin’s cousin.
Gavin’s family is still trying to make sense of the murder.
“We don’t know why. We have no idea why this would have happened. It’s difficult to put it behind you when you’re still trying to figure out what really happened,” said his cousin Howard Rye.
Police continue to search for clues as well.
They’re not sure if Bromfield was targeted or if this was a random crime. Gavin’s car was stolen and found a short distance away.
“It happened really quick. We don’t know if there was any altercation prior to the shooting,” said Det. Hector Bertrand from the Miramar Police Department.
Police believe two men might have been involved in the crime and they might have been on foot which could explain why they stole Gavin’s car.
The car was recovered at 77th Avenue and Harbour Boulevard.
Miramar Police say they are looking through Bromfield’s phone for leads and they’re trying to piece together his final movements before returning home.
For now, Gavin’s family is left grasping for answers and devastated by the pain and lack of information on their loved one’s death.
They’re hoping a reward of 8-thousand dollars will convince someone with information to speak up.
Anyone with information should call Broward Crime Stoppers at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
