Miami-Dade police are investigating a fatal shooting in Opa-locka, just blocks from City Hall.
Three suspects are in custody and are being questioning but no arrests have been made. Police also recovered an AR-15 assault rifle allegedly dropped by the suspects when they bailed from a car.
The incident took place at about 12:30 p.m. Monday when police responded to a shots fired call at Northwest 133rd Street and Alexandria Drive. They found the victim, an unidentified male in his 30s, with gunshot wounds.
The suspected gunmen fled in a vehicle and crashed at Northwest 135th Street and Cairo Lane. After the crash, they bailed and ran.
Investigators and officers received a trip that led them to an apartment complex at 135th Street and Northwest 32nd Court where they found the three people being questioned.
Lt. John Jenkins, a spokesman for Miami-Dade police, could not confirm if the people were directly involved in the shooting.
The victim was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead. No other individuals were injured.
Police are trying to determine if the AR-15 is the weapon used in the fatal shooting.
