Police say that the two men are not the ones who pulled the trigger though.READ MORE: 'When I Finally Got To Be Elvira, That's When My Life Calmed Down': Mistress Of The Dark Peels Back The Curtain
“Being a witness to a crime does not make you a criminal,” said attorney Mario Conley Hernandez.
That’s the argument Hernandez is using in this homicide case.
His client is one of three men accused of being involved in a fight that ended in gunfire earlier this week, leaving 16-year-old Ana Alvarez Hernandez dead.
Police say Loidel Gomez-Rouco was involved.
He was in court on Friday, accused of driving the getaway car.
The shooting happened around 3 a.m. earlier this week in the parking lot of 94th Aero Squadron, a popular restaurant next to Miami International Airport.

“There were two groups of males who were fighting and we know at least one of them went to the car, grabbed a firearm and started shooting,” said Det. Argemis Colome with Miami-Dade Police.
Hernandez was hit once, the only one struck by a bullet.
Police say a friend drove her to the hospital where she later died. No one ever called police.
“I can only imagine what it is to receive that phone call that your 16-year old is dead,” said Det. Colome. “That is not acceptable.”
Hernandez and her family emigrated from Cuba in the last two years.
The teen was a Miami-Dade public schools student.
Police say the third man who fired the rifle fled to Cuba and his friends knew about it.
Gomez is being held on a $10,000 bond and if he bonds out he’ll be placed on house arrest. His passport was also taken.MORE NEWS: Fight Is On To Save Wild Monkeys Living In Dania Beach
