NORTH MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Almost a week after a security officer was shot at an apartment buidling, police release surveillance video of his last moments.
North Miami Police said Juan Marimon, 52, was found shot multiple times at 3:45 a.m. on Sunday at a Publix parking lot across from an apartment complex in North Miami.
The video shows Marimon bleeding as he got out of his car at the grocery store after he had been shot several times. What you don’t see on camera is that he died just moments later.
Police said they believe the shooting happened at the apartment complex where he had been working his first shift as a security guard. Even though Marimon had a full-time job as a hospital bus driver, he decided to get a part-time job as a security guard to pay for his wife’s medical bills.
The also believe Marimon possibly tried to drive to a hospital, but could not make it.
Through tears, his wife plead for justice one day after he was buried. His wife said he was the best thing that ever happened to her.
“We’re all destroyed and there’s nothing we can do about it,” said Marimon’s daughter in law Aleimy Febles.
Residents said there is a lot of crime.
“Too many thieves over there. Maybe rob people, cars, break-ins,” said resident Nicholas Gein.
His family says he wanted his only son to have kids.
Although his daughter in law isn’t pregnant now, she regrets her kids will never meet their grandfather.
“I will always show them pictures so they can see him. There is nothing else we can do,” said Febles.
Authorities are still trying to find the gunman but are asking for the community’s help. Police have no information on who might have shot the security guard.
Crime stoppers is offering a three-thousand dollar reward for any information leading to an arrest.
