The 22-year-old man who was shot dead outside an apartment complex in northeast Miami-Dade on Friday, was identified by police Saturday afternoon as investigators continue to search for suspects.
Maxime Benjamin, 22, and his 23-year-old girlfriend Kimeisha Malcolm were sitting in the front seats of a black GMC Yukon in a parking lot outside his apartment, at 20210 NE Third Court at about 4:30 p.m., when the vehicle was approached by two men armed with handguns, Miami-Dade police said.
Benjamin began to accelerate when the suspects started shooting, striking him fatally. The suspects then fled the scene.
When officers arrived at the scene they found Benjamin dead and Malcolm unharmed.
