Miami-Dade police arrested a Homestead man and charged him with shooting and killing another man following an argument in a parking lot.

Osman Javier Lopez, 26, was booked into Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center Sunday night and charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.

When two groups of men got into a fight in a parking lot at 29351 SW 152nd Ave. in South Miami-Dade Sunday morning, Lopez “disengaged from the fight to retrieve a firearm from a vehicle,” according to a police statement.

He then returned and shot Robert Burgos, 27, of Homestead, police said.

Burgos died in the lot.

Two other men suffered head injuries during the fight and were taken to Kendall Regional Trauma Center.

Lopez remained on the scene where he was later arrested.
