Two people shot to death in cars minutes away from each other in Miami-Dade, cops say

Two people were found shot to death inside cars on Saturday, police say. The shootings occurred in two different Miami-Dade neighborhoods, just five minutes away from each other.

Shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday, police and fire rescue responded to the Northwest 20th Avenue and 65th intersection in the Gladeview neighborhood, where they found a woman with several gunshot wounds.

She was already dead on the scene.

The woman, according to fire rescue radio transmissions, was killed inside the Lincoln Fields apartment complex. A Crime Stoppers post on X identified the victim as 18-year-old Shakeria Denise Williams.

Investigators have not made an arrest, police say, though homicide detectives are leading the probe into the killing.

Earlier that day, around 12:30 p.m., police responded to the Sunflex gas station at Northwest 17th Avenue and 79th Street in West Little River, where they found an adult man gunned down inside a car.

Video footage shows a green sedan riddled with bullet holes. Loved ones identified the slain man as Edward Bernard Bailey, a 53-year-old father of six.

Miami-Dade police hasn’t released information about possible leads in the case. There’s no known link between the two murders.

Anyone with information about the shootings should contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
