Man shot and killed at Florida City home Monday night


A Florida City man was found shot to death in his home, Miami-Dade police said Tuesday.

Renaldo Clayton was fatally shot at 1635 NW First Ave., at about 9:30 p.m. Monday, said Miami-Dade police spokesman Alvaro Zabaleta.

No other person was found at the home and police did not release any other details in the case.

“We’re waiting” to find our more, Brenda Milton, Clayton’s aunt told reporters.

Clayton, 32, worked on a road crew for the city. A family member said when Clayton returned home, someone was waiting for him inside, and shot him.

The father of a young child was described as a family man with ties to a local church. Though his last name matched that of a victim in an earlier shooting, police didn’t say Tuesday whether the two were related.
