Man found shot to death near Richmond Heights park

Miami-Dade Police Department is investigating after a man was found shot to death near a Richmond Heights Park early Tuesday morning.

According to police, Robert Wayne Engleton, 19, was found at about 2 a.m. Tuesday in Sgt. Joseph Delancy Park, 14450 Boggs Dr., after police responded to a report that a person had been shot.

It was not clear Tuesday night what may have led to the shooting, police said.

Engleton’s girlfriend, Jukeara Brown, told Miami Herald news partner CBS4 that he was “very genuine and he was caring.”

“He was happy to hang out at his job and help his grandmom,” Brown told the station. “It’s messed up .… I don’t feel there is going to be justice.”
