Around 4 p.m. Thursday, Miami-Dade police found three people with gunshot wounds in the 19700 block of Southwest 200th Street. One, 36-year-old Juan Cruz, was sent to Jackson South Trauma for emergency surgery.

The other two were dead on scene. Police identified one victim as 35-year-old Wilfredo Javier Siam but didn’t release the name of the other victim, a 30-year-old man, because his family hadn’t been told yet.

Miami-Dade police arrested 49-year-old Luis Enrique Castillo and charged him with two counts of second-degree murder with a deadly weapon, one count of attempted second degree murder and possessing a gun as a convicted felon. He eventually surrendered to police after fleeing in a white pickup truck, then by foot.
