Detectives ask for help in finding Miami woman's killer

Arelys Gomez, 48, shot multiple times outside home last November

MIAMI – Detectives are asking for the public's help in finding the person responsible for the killing of a woman in Miami last November.

Police said Arelys Gomez, 48, was found suffering from several gunshot wounds about 8:30 p.m. Nov. 22 outside her home at 150 SW 52nd Place.

According to detectives, Gomez was standing outside her home alone when a man tried to rob her. Gomez was shot several times before the man fled the area.

Police said surveillance video from a nearby business showed a slim, hooded man leaving the area about the same times of the shooting.

Gomez, who is survived by her two children, was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where she was pronounced dead.

"We have been working the case since that happened," Miami police Detective Daniel Valladares told Local 10 News. "We were trying to identify the suspect through police investigative techniques, but unfortunately we have not been able to do so. So that's why I need everybody to take a second of their day, take a look at this video and see if they know this person."

Valladares said Gomez was robbed, but he wouldn't say what was taken.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the Miami Police Department's homicide unit at 305-603-6350 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
