MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Investigators are trying to figure out what prompted the shooting of a 15-year-old Northwest Miami-Dade teen, killed Tuesday in a drive-by while walking home from store.
New surveillance tape obtained by CBS4 may provide some clues, including the suspect’s getaway car.
At 6:05 p.m., the tape shows the victim, Calixto Logan, inside a Chevron convenience store at N.W. 6th Ave. and 103rd Street just moments before the shooting.
The store manager told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench that Logan spent eight minutes inside the store while his sister applied for a job.
At 6:13 p.m, Logan leaves the store and a minute later, he’s seen walking through the parking lot with two friends.
Five minutes after that, 911 receives a call that he has been shot, just blocks away from his home.
Cameras also show a dark-colored vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed, going southbound on N.W. 6th Avenue and then making a right turn, heading westbound on N.W. 103rd Street.
Miami-Dade Police said Logan was walking along the sidewalk on N.W. 106th Street, near N.W. 6th Avenue, when a dark-colored vehicle drove by and shot him.
Logan went down in a hail of bullets.
“When officers arrived, they found a juvenile that was laying on the sidewalk. He had been shot multiple times,” said Det. Jennifer Capote. “He was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital where, unfortunately, he was pronounced deceased.”
Logan was known by many in the neighborhood.
“He’s a good kid, I’ve known him since he was a little kid. He would be riding around the neighborhood as a neighborhood kid,” said Gil Nieves. “In the past 30 years, this is the first time that somebody has been killed down the street. It’s sad.”
Police have not said if Logan was the intended target.
“He was a very respectful little boy when I knew him, he never caused any trouble,” said neighbor Jeanette Aviles, who lives across the street.
She heard the shots and ran out to help.
“He wasn’t able to talk,” she said. “He just looked at me like saying ‘help me, help me’ but we couldn’t do anything. I talked to him, told him to keep his eyes open, don’t go,” she said.
Aviles added that enough is enough.
“They need to stop all these killings, put the guns down, enjoy life,” she added. “Too many kids are dying. Too many.”
Logan was a student at the Jan Mann Opportunity School in Opa-Locka. Loved ones and friends set up a wooden cross next to where he was shot.
Miami-Dade Police have not released a description of the shooter and have not said what the motive was for the shooting.
Anyone with information should call Miami-DADE Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477). There is a reward of up to $3,000.
