MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — A 16-year-old male shot dead in a car was the fourth member of a Miami family to be shot this month.
Miami Gardens Police Maj. Ralph Suarez tells The Miami Herald that Jemelle Raymond’s death early Tuesday appeared “like a gang retaliation shooting.”
Also killed was an 18-year-old man, and a 20-year-old man was injured. No arrests have been made.
The Herald reports that Jemelle’s 18-year-old brother was fatally shot June 2 as he fled his attackers into the family’s home in Miami’s Liberty City. Their 11-year-old sister and a 13-year-old brother were wounded in that shooting.
At the time, the father, Tremelle Raymond Sr., said he wanted to leave the neighborhood because of its violence. Miami police officials tell the Herald that Raymond has moved and they couldn’t reach him.
