MIAMI – Miami police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead early Thursday morning.

The shooting occurred just after 3 a.m. at a condominium building at 321 NE 26th St. in Miami’s Edgewater neighborhood.

City of Miami Police Commander Freddie Cruz said an argument ensued inside the lobby of the building, which led to at least one shot being fired.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Very uncommon. We haven’t had a homicide in this area in a very long time,” Cruz said.

Police swarmed the area and set up a perimeter, but the shooter has not been found.

“We are interviewing some witnesses, reviewing camera footage, but again, we always need the community’s help so we can apprehend the person or persons responsible for this violent crime,” Cruz said.

No other details were immediately known.

Anyone with further information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
