“We were out here to try to get a hold of the community to see if anybody heard something, saw something, so they could reach out to us to provide us with some information to help us to solve this murder,” said Miami-Dade Police Department Homicide Bureau Det. Jose Toral.
Neighbors said Gonzalez was with his pregnant girlfriend and a child when someone stepped up to him. The armed man told the woman to step aside and then shot Gonzalez four times. He died before help could arrive.
