According to Miramar Police, around 2 a.m. Saturday morning, officers were sent to 8600 Wilshire Drive in reference to a shot fired. While officers were en route, they were diverted to a vehicle accident close by. According to police, they found a male driver who had been shot and crashed into a car on Miramar Parkway near Canal Road, just a few blocks away from where the shot was reported on Wilshire Drive.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
Officers who went to the home found people in the backyard pool who immediately went inside and refused to come out.
Witnesses at the crash scene said Suarez and the driver who died were associates.
The owner of the home provided police with Ring camera video which doesn’t show Suarez departing the residence, but it does show him returning at 1:56 a.m. carrying what appeared to be a brown paper bag in his left hand and the butt of a handgun was visibly protruding from his right front pocket, according to the arrest affidavit.READ MORE: Missing North Miami Beach Teen Jeimy Henrriquez Has Been Found
