Two Men Found Dead in Bullet-Riddled Car in Southwest Miami-Dade

MIAMI — A tragic scene unfolded late Wednesday night when two men were found dead inside a bullet-riddled car that crashed near the Turnpike in southwest Miami-Dade. The incident occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Quail Roost Drive at SW 113th Avenue.

The grey Mercedes-Benz, with approximately 15 to 20 bullet holes in the passenger side, had slammed into a utility pole near the Turnpike overpass and ended up in the intersection. The violent nature of the crash and shooting has left the local community in shock and grief.

Darryl Collins, a friend of the victims and their family, expressed his disbelief and sorrow. “I couldn’t imagine them two getting shot because they don’t bother nobody,” he said. The family of the two men, now mourning the loss of a child, husband, father, and grandfather, is struggling to cope with the tragedy.

Collins, who is deeply familiar with the pain of losing loved ones to gun violence, helps with a local non-profit, Mothers Fighting 4 Justice. This organization is dedicated to supporting families who have lost loved ones to such senseless acts.

“It’s been hard for me every day. Wake up, can’t sleep, cry, never going to bring back my child,” Collins shared, reflecting on the loss of his own two sons to gun violence in 2008 and 2015. His empathy and support for the grieving family underscore the pervasive and personal impact of gun violence in the community.

Police are actively investigating the incident to determine the circumstances leading up to the shooting. As the investigation unfolds, the community remains on edge, hoping for answers and justice for the victims.

The incident has added to the growing concern about gun violence in Miami-Dade, prompting calls for increased efforts to address the root causes and prevent further tragedies. Community leaders and organizations like Mothers Fighting 4 Justice continue to advocate for change, hoping to prevent more families from experiencing such profound loss.

The Miami-Dade Police Department urges anyone with information about the shooting to come forward, emphasizing the importance of community cooperation in solving this case and bringing those responsible to justice.
