Miami Gardens police on Sunday released the identity of the man they say fatally shot someone in a gas station convenience store.
Police say Emanuel De’von Hilton, 23, walked into an Exxon gas station convenience store, 16850 NW 27th Ave., before 12:45 a.m. Saturday, just after 22-year-old Jared Smith had entered the store. The two men, both customers, got into a fight and Smith pushed Hilton out of the store.
Hilton then returned, with a firearm, and fired a bullet into Smith’s head before running out of the store, police said. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue pronounced Smith dead a few minutes later.
Hilton was taken into custody shortly after running, police said, and charged with second-degree murder. He is being held in Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center without bond.
