HIALEAH GARDENS, Fla. – A shooting Tuesday outside at a bus stop near a Home Depot has left one man dead and sent two victims to a hospital, authorities say, and the gunman remains on the loose.

It happened at a City of Hialeah Transit bus stop at 13895 W. Okeechobee Road, near Northwest 138th Street. A witness says the shooter was standing near him, as though he were waiting for a bus, then suddenly opened fire and took off running.

Mathew D. Stringer, 21, has been identified as the man killed.

Local 10 News obtained surveillance video that shows the incident.

Detectives were going door to door around the area Wednesday with a flyer showing Stringer’s face to try to get any information about the gunman who shot him Tuesday afternoon.

A 66-year-old man and a 38-year-old man were taken to Jackson Memorial Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition, Miami-Dade County police say. Their names have not been released.

Video showed people tending to one of the injured men after he was shot in the hand.

At least four shell casings could be seen on the pavement Tuesday afternoon as Stringer’s body lay in the street.
