Murder Miami Style: Two Dead in Separate Shootings Across Town This Morning
View Larger Map
In a bizarre coincidence, two men died and another clings to life this morning after separate shootings 15 miles apart at virtually the same time.
The deadly hour was 6:30 a.m.
One shooting left 43-year-old Conrado Antigua Gallardo dead on the street at 1550 SW 131st Ct.. in Tamiami. Another hail of bullets, at the same moment, felled two unidentified men in a white SUV downtown, near NE First Avenue and Tenth Street.
Gallardo and another Hispanic man were heard arguing loudly in front of a squat home on SW 131st Court. Neighbors heard shots at 6:30 a.m., says Rebecca Perez, a Miami-Dade Police spokeswoman.
Police are looking for a 5'5", 180-pound Hispanic man in blue pants, a long-sleeve blue shirt, and a blue baseball hat, who was seen running south after the shooting.
Meanwhile, a white SUV slowed at a stoplight at NE First Avenue downtown. A car pulled up alongside and someone fired several shots into the SUV, says Officer Jeffrey Giordano, a Miami PD spokesman.
One victim died on the scene, and another is in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
