MIAMI - Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez-Rundle is asking for the public's help in finding the shooter who killed a 17-year-old boy last week in Miami.
"At 8 p.m. (Friday), 17-year-old Robert Smith was gunned down in the city of Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood," Fernandez-Rundle said in a video posted Monday on Twitter. "Robert was standing outside a friend's home on Northwest 63rd Street and Third Court when someone drove by and opened fire on Robert and his friends."
The shooting happened just a block away from Miami Edison Senior High School.
A Miami Fire Rescue crew took Smith to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he died.
"If you know anything about this senseless murder, please call in your anonymous tips to Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS," Fernandez-Rundle said. "We need your eyes and ears to help us solve Robert's murder. His life matters. We need your help to stop the killing."
