A man answered a knock at the door of his house and was shot dead Wednesday night, Miami Gardens police say.

Cops identified the victim only as a 33-year-old black male.

Police say they found him around 10:51 p.m. at the front door of a house in the 21100 block of Northwest 29th Avenue after receiving a call about a shot man. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue pronounced him dead in the doorway.

“Investigation revealed the victim resided at the residence and responded to a knock at the front door,” Miami Gardens police stated in a release. “After opening the door, the victim was shot by unknown subject(s).”
