View Larger Map
Welcome to the hot seat, Miguel Exposito.
Just a few hours after Tomas Regalado named his choice for new chief of the City of Miami PD, the first murder of the not-yet-official Exposito era crackled across the police radio.
The details are still sketchy, but sometime before 8:15 p.m. a man was standing in front of his vehicle at 14th Ave. and NW 27th St. when bullets started flying.
The victim was hit multiple times. He was dead on the street by the time police arrived a few minutes later.
Police aren't releasing the name yet as they try to notify the man's family, says Officer Jeffrey Giordano, a Miami PD spokesman.
Exposito, meanwhile, is expected to be named chief at an 11 a.m. news conference today.
