Police say at 9:00 a.m. Friday morning, an argument between two moving company workers escalated and a third employee who tried to stop the fight. But one of the men involved in the fight pulled out a gun and shot the worker he was fighting with and the man who tried to break up the fight.
“This was an isolated incident. We are working with the families to find the identity of the shooter,” said Sgt. Deanna Greenlaw.
“It was yelling, a fight, you could hear it was a fight,” said Joy, a resident who lives behind the warehouse district where the moving company is based.READ MORE: FIU Ranked First Among Florida Public Universities
Joy said since the warehouse district was built a couple of years ago, she’s lost more than her view.
“I’m ready to get out of here. This used to be so tranquil, the country,” said.
