Five Dead in Murder-Suicide in Hialeah Restaurant
A man shot six women -- killing four -- at a Hialeah restaurant on June 6, before leaving the scene and eventually killing himself on one of the most gruesome killing sprees in the history of the city.
According to WSVN,the shootings started after a argument between a man and his girlfriend in the parking lot of El Yoyito Restaurant, at 351 E. 45th Street. After shooting the woman several times in the parking lot of the restaurant, the man walked inside and shot the other women who were apparently acquaintances of his girlfriend. He left the scene in one of the victim's car but police found him dead a few blocks away, after an apparent suicide a short while later.
