A bloody night in Northwest Miami-Dade left two women shot — one fatally — and a man hospitalized for stab wounds.
Miami-Dade police believe the violence was a domestic-related murder and attempted suicide. Police say the dead woman, 44-year-old Yunia Gomez, and 19-year-old Eryka Jimenez were shot by 41-year-old Jairo Ramon-Media just before 10 p.m. Wednesday.
According to the report, the three lived together. Wednesday night, Ramon-Media fought with Gomez. The argument escalated and Ramon-Media shot Gomez and her daughter, Jimenez. He then tried to kill himself with a knife.
Rescue arrived at the home, in the 2600 block of Northwest 99th Street, to find Gomez dead, Jimenez shot and Ramon-Media with apparently self-inflicted stab wounds. He and Jimenez were transported to Ryder Trauma. She’s in stable condition, and Ramon-Media is undergoing surgery.
