TUESDAY UPDATE: The deceased was identified as 35-year-old Christopher Tassy.

A man was shot and killed and another was injured during a Sunday night shooting in Little Haiti over a drug-deal gone bad, according to police.

The names of the victims had not been released by late Monday morning and police hadn’t released any information on the shooter.

Police say the two men were in a car near the corner of Northeast Second Avenue and 57th Street at 9:30 p.m., when they were shot. The injured man managed to get out of the car and walk two blocks to nearby Churchill’s Hideaway Pub to ask for help. Medics took him to the hospital and police soon found the dead man in the car a block away.

Anybody with information should call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
