Miami Gardens police were investigating a deadly shooting Sunday at a car wash.
The shooting happened about 1:30 p.m. near Northwest 191st Street and First Place, police Capt. Ralph Suarez said.
The victim was trying to stop a robbery in progress, Suarez said.
Dozens of people gathered at the scene. Several friends and neighbors identified the victim as Errold Peart, the owner of the car wash, according to Miami Herald news partner CBS-4.
Its sad, said Tamika Smith, who went directly to the scene after getting out of work. Hes going to be missed.
Smith said Peart would give jobs to people who had fallen on tough times. Several Miami Gardens police officers also knew the victim personally.
He was a very nice gentleman, Suarez said. Its unfortunate that he was shot.
