Miami Gardens - Opa-locka

An argument turned to murder at an apartment, cops say. Some of it was captured on video.

The video shows a man police believe to be the shooter waiting in the hallway, a gun tucked into his waistband under a dark shirt. When Wayne Mitchell passes him near an opening in the wall, the shooter is seen on the video grabbing his gun and following his victim.

Then, the two men can longer be seen on the video. Police say the man, who had not been identified by late Tuesday, then shot and killed Mitchell, 50.

According to police, the shooting happened just before midnight Monday in an apartment at Northwest 22nd Avenue and Washington Avenue in Opa-locka. Police believe Mitchell knew his killer and the two got into an argument earlier that led to his death.

An apartment building surveillance video acquired by a WPLG-Channel 10 reporter shows the shooter waiting like a hunter for Mitchell to walk down a hallway before following and shooting him.
