Murder Miami Style: Three Shot, One Dead in Design District Attack
Three men were shot and one killed on NW 44th Street early this morning, just a few blocks from the trendy heart of the Design District.
Around 1 a.m., two men walked up to a house at 40 NW 40th St. and sprayed the three victims with bullets before fleeing the scene, says Det. William Moreno, a spokesman for the Miami Police Department.
Emmanuel Brice, a 23-year-old who lived a few blocks from the shooting, was pronounced dead on the scene, Moreno says.
The other two victims are at Jackson Memorial Hospital; their injuries aren't considered life-threatening, according to Moreno. Police aren't releasing any details about the other two victims yet.
