North Miami police are searching for two suspects they say helped in a shooting that left one person dead last month.

At midnight on Nov. 1, police say three people, one of them Anthawn D. Ragan Jr., 19, arrived at the Motel 7 at 13445 NW 7 Ave. Two of them shot at the victim multiple times and he died on the scene. Police are not releasing the victim’s name.

“The victim was standing outside, they shot him a couple times and then they fled,” said police spokesman Maj. Neal Cuevas.

Police were led to Ragan through tips and other information, according to Cuevas.

Ragan is charged with first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a violent career criminal.

Although Ragan was arrested, the two other suspects are still at large.

They fled in 1999 or 2000 model, dark-colored Nissan Maxima with four doors. The vehicle has a sunroof and the Maxima logo on the rear of the vehicle is missing or not visible.

Police are urging anyone with information on the vehicle or the shooting to contact Crime Stoppers, 305-471-8477, or the North Miami Police Department, 305-891-0294.
