Police search for gunmen in Miami Gardens shooting
MIAMI-DADE, Fla. – The killers of a former Miami Norland Senior High School student were running free on Saturday.
Joshua Cadet's family was mourning his death. The 16-year-old died early Friday morning in Miami Gardens.
He was in front of a home on Northwest Seventh Place, between 181st and 179th Terrace, when bullets started flying.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue couldn't save him. Doctors at Hollywood Memorial Hospital pronounced him dead.
ARMED WITH GUN
The shooting happened a few days after a police officer shot 16-year-old Latavis Graham, whom they said was armed with a handgun.
Latavis was in a Kia that didn't have a license plate and was reported stolen May 17. He was with 16-year-old Christopher Jones and 15-year-old Kennen Brown.
Both Latavis and Christopher were armed, police said.
Despite commands to drop his weapon, police said an officer shot Latavis when he pointed a gun at police officers.
