Man shot dead behind Little Havana auto parts store, police say

MIAMI – A man was shot and killed early Monday in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, authorities said.

According to Miami police spokeswoman Kiara Delva, a police officer found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound shortly before 2 a.m. behind Delta Auto Parts near Northwest 27th Avenue and Fourth Street.

"It's something crazy, because I literally live right there for four years, and I never heard nothing like that," Jorge Toledo told Local 10 News. 

Miami Fire Rescue officials responded to the scene and took the victim to a local hospital, where he died.

Crime scene detectives, meanwhile, shined flashlights on the ground in the alleyway and swabbed an area, possibly looking to collect DNA evidence.
