Man fatally stabbed outside southwest Miami-Dade liquor store

Raul Beatriz, 45, pronounced dead at scene


MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – By the time Miami-Dade police arrived, it was too late for Raul Beatriz.

A 45-year-old man was lying on the ground outside a liquor store at Bird Road at Southwest 114th Avenue.

Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said the fight started in the liquor store.

"He was approached by another male," Zabaleta said. "They walked out. There was some type of confrontation, possible physical confrontation outside of the liquor store, and then one of the subjects flees the area."

Beatriz was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives are hoping someone can recall anything that could help them figure out who killed Beatriz and why.

"Somebody had to see a vehicle drive away erratically, somebody running, riding a bike," Zabaleta said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
