Doorbell camera video captured a 16-year-old boy wincing in pain after being shot in the arm.
“There was a young boy, he was 16 years old,” explained a neighbor, who did not want to be identified. “He ran all the way down from his home to the end of this apartment banging on doors asking for help saying had been shot.”
As police arrived, he told them he escaped after his family was shot.
When police arrived at the residence, they found five people who had been shot. A 38-year-old woman and the teen dead were dead.
An 11-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy were airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center.
“The 11-year-old that’s in critical condition is a female and the 16-year-old that is in stable condition is a male,” said police Detective Angel Rodriguez.
The third injured person, an 18-year-old male, was taken to Jackson South Medical Center. His condition was not released.
Shortly before being taken to the hospital, that 16-year-old can be heard on doorbell video saying, “Do not let me die.”
“Whenever you have juveniles that not only are injured but killed it affects us all as a community,” said Rodriguez.READ MORE: COVID-19 Hospitalizations Inching Up In Florida
Back on the scene, officers were looking for the shooter.
The 42-year-old suspected gunman left the residence after the shooting and police believed he was somewhere in the neighborhood.
A Special Response Team and hostage negotiators were called in. He was located and police tried to get him to surrender.
“As the officers were attempting to negotiate with the subject he committed suicide with a self-inflicted gunshot,” said Rodriguez.
Police said it appears the shooter was the boyfriend of the woman who was killed.
“It is an isolated incident and the community needs to know that they are safe,” said Rodriguez.
