Miami police are asking the public’s help in finding two gunmen who robbed and killed a man working outside his home Tuesday.
The victim, identified as Marcus Smith, 58, was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly after his arrival.
The daylight robbers made off with a watch, cash and other valuables, said Miami police spokesman Sgt. Freddie Cruz.
“They just fired up on him; the motive appears to be robbery,” Cruz said.
Police said the incident began about 2:05 p.m. when the victim was apparently outside his home at 549 NW 44th Street when he was accosted by the two suspects who shot him several times.
The victim collapsed several feet away and the suspects robbed him of his jewelry then fled on foot.
The men are believed to in their 20s both with a thin build. One was wearing a red striped shirt, the other a black hoodie.
“I know that’s kind of vague information, but if anyone saw anything, we need them to come forward,” Cruz said.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 305-471-8477.
