Another night of shooting in northwest Miami-Dade ends with a father dead


A half-mile from Monday's ambush of two Miami-Dade police detectives, for which one teenager has been arrested, a father of three was fatally shot at his home Wednesday night in Liberty City.

Police found a man at the corner of Northwest 63rd Street and 13th Avenue. They found shell casings at 1300 NW 63rd Terrace, the home of Andrew Griffin, 28, according to records.

Though Miami police did not identify the victim by Thursday evening, social media postings confirmed the man was Griffin. The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m.

Miami Fire Rescue took Griffin to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died.

Police say the shooter left the scene in the back seat of an older-model beige Toyota Corolla.

Anyone with information should call Miami police at 305-603-6350; Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477; text 274637; or go to the website.
