Additional information from Fox News: Gunman among 7 dead in Florida apartment shooting
Police Sgt. Eddie Rodriguez tells Fox News that the gunman was shot dead by a SWAT team following a standoff at a five-story building in Hialeah, just a few miles north of Miami.
Rodriguez said the bodies of three women and two men were found throughout the apartment complex after police arrived. Another man was killed across the street when the gunman allegedly spotted him and took aim.
WSVN.com reported that the manager of the West 46th Street apartment building and his wife were among the victims.
Good ol’ Miami.
This happened back in the 70s when I lived there. Off N. Kendall Dr., S. Miami
6 adults shot execution style. Mix of men and women.
Baby kidnapped. Perps left the baby on a street corner some time later.
Colombian drug related.
This kind of crap is one of the reasons I skedaddled from the place of my birth in the mid 80s.
Being it happened in Hialeah good bet it was' White Hispanic'. Very large Cuban population in Hialeah.
There is a time and place for military-type SWAT response and this appears to be one of them.
Lots of recent problems appear to arise from using this type of response, the need for which is rare, too often.
Must be one of those right wing tea party types. /s
Hialeah is not Miami. It is a separate city. I grew up in Hialeah. This is very sad.
Other news sites are saying two dead. Confusing story unless there are two separate stories that happened in Hialeah.
...Three of the victims were men and three were women. Shamira Pisciotti identified two of them as her parents, Italo and Samira Pisciotti. She said she heard the shots, ran over to her parents in the building, and found her mother dead and her father clinging to life.
“I guess there was an altercation and the person opened fire on both of them. My mom was dead the moment that she was shot and my dad still had a pulse when I got to him,” Shamira Pisciotti said.
Here is another local article which gives a bit more detail.
“7 Killed, Including Shooting Suspect, In Hialeah Apartment Complex”
Pisciotti (daughter of apartment managers) and her fiancée said the shooting was the result of some sort of complaint.
They got complaints from some neighbor that a situation was going on they went upstairs to do their duty as property managers,said Pisciottis fiancée, who did not want to be identified.
Another man was killed across the street when the gunman allegedly spotted him and took aim.
I never knew someone could be killed just by “taking aim” at them.
Can George Zimmerman account for his whereabouts at the time of this ?
No, but at least we know where Trayvon was.
That happened last night, and we still don’t know the identity of the perp?
You have to wonder why.
In all fairness it might be because they haven't yet cleared the scene. But on the other hand ....
During the change over some years back I heard folks in Miami were leaving their car doors unlocked so thieves wouldn’t have to break window to steal the radio...
