Miami Gardens police investigate fatal shooting

A man was shot and killed Wednesday night in a Miami Gardens neighborhood just north of Miami Gardens Drive.

Georgina Smith told Miami Herald news partner CBS4 that her son Romeo Hibbert was shot to death.

"My tears today, yours tomorrow because you know what? What goes around comes around," Smith said. "It's just these young, good for nothing thugs that ain't doing nothing with their life and destroying other people’s life."

It was not clear Wednesday night what led to the shooting or whether two damaged cars near Hibbert’s body were involved.

Miami Gardens Detective Michael Wright told CBS4 that investigators were working to discern if those vehicles are linked to the killing.

The department did not release any other information Wednesday night.

Neighbors told the news station that they heard at least 8 gunshots.
