PEMBROKE PINES (CBSMiami) – Two weeks after Rodney Gray was shot and killed inside his gated community in Pembroke Pines, his grieving wife can’t understand why there has been no arrest in the case.
“All I want is justice for Rodney,” said Robin Gray. “It’s been two weeks and I am alone and I don’t have answers.”
Lawyers for Robin Gray said it all started with a minor traffic crash which led to a confrontation between Rodney Gray and another man named Rodney Paul. Police said, as the altercation escalated, Paul shot Gray. Gray died of his injuries. Police have not said whether the two men were arguing or physically fighting, and they won’t say whether Rodney Gray was also armed, but his wife said she knows what happened.
“My husband was unarmed and there was no physical altercation,” Gray said. “He was killed in front of me over words.”
Although police said they know who shot Rodney Gray it’s not clear yet whether a crime has been committed.
“We have to gather all the evidence available to us, that evidence could be in several forms, it could be forensic, physical, additional witness information we still haven’t been able to obtain; we’re in the process of trying to gather all that information,” said Captain Al Xiques with the Pembroke Pines Police Department.
It’s not yet clear whether charges will be filed in the case, but police will work with the State Attorney’s Office. Although the investigation is taking time, police say ultimately their goal is the same as that of Rodney Gray’s family.
“Our goal is to ensure that justice is ultimately served,” said Captain Xiques.
CBS4 News tried to contact Rodney Paul to get his side of the story about what happened but was unable to reach him as of Thursday evening. Police say he has fully cooperated with their investigation.
