Miami-Dade police on Thursday said the man found dead in his car in the Fontainebleau area the night before was shot.

A woman spotted the man, identified Thursday as Carlos Zuloeta, 25, in his blue Toyota Corolla in the GolfView town home complex on Fontainebleau Boulevard and Northwest 97th Avenue. It was about 6 p.m. Wednesday and she called 911.

Det. Romelio Martinez said Thursday detectives are still trying to piece together what happened. “Detectives are following up on investigative leads at this time to determine the motive and identify a suspect or suspects,” Martinez said.

Meanwhile, neighbors are still on edge after the shooting.

“I’m hoping it’s some sort of personal confrontation and nothing to do with the community,” resident Ivo Dafre told Miami Herald news partner CBS4.

Miami-Dade Police Department is asking anyone with information to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Tipsters with information leading to an arrest may be eligible for up to a $3,000 reward.
