A Miramar hospital employee was shot dead at work Thursday morning.
There are different articles on this story I’m about to discuss, all relatively similar but a few different points, so I am going to link you to each article I found at the bottom of my discussion.
It was only about 4:30 am when an employee from Miramar Hospital was shot while sitting in his car in the parking lot, on 1901 SW 172nd Ave.
They are saying an off-duty police officer who was in the hospital ran outside and fired at the shooter, Miramar police spokesman Tania Rues said. Other articles are saying it was a police officer who was inside the hospital who was on security detail. Either way the officer ran outside only to find the victim already dead.
Police are looking for a red Nissan Xterra SUV, and they are looking at surveillance cameras in hopes to find out more about the killer. Around 5:00 to 5:30 a.m., the victim’s body remained in the driver’s seat of his car and was pronounced dead. Police still have not released the persons name or why he may have been shot. This case is still under investigation.
The hospital is still open to the public.
It’s scary to read and hear about cases like this. Cases that lye so close to home. Why was this man shot? The person who did it, what were they thinking? Questions no one knows at the moment. Hopefully the cameras will show more detail on how the shooter looks, and hopefully they will catch him quickly before he does something else.
My prayers go out to the victim shot in his car and to his family who will now have to mourn his death.
