Police investigating shooting that left 2 dead
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Police are investigating a shooting that left two people dead in Liberty City.
The shooting occurred at around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, when the first 911 calls went out.
Surveillance video was released from inside Steve's Food Market, on the corner of Northwest 69th Street and 15th Avenue in Liberty City.
Greyston Garcia, 26, is seen on surveillance video at the register. Garcia, who is a cashier at the market, was one of the victims that was shot and killed outside the store.
Garcia is then seen inside the store eating. A few minutes later, he walked outside and appeared to be on his cell phone, then talked to people who were sitting outside the market.
Garcia walked back into the store. His coworkers said Garcia left the store, drove around the block, and shortly afterwards, they heard gunshots. "I heard people screaming outside. Then, I came outside of my door and they said, 'Greyston's dead,' and I couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe it," said Garcia's neighbor, Anthony Throne.
Police arrived on scene and taped off several blocks while they conducted their investigation. Officers on the ground spoke with witnesses, as they worked to figure out who pulled the trigger.
Police said a 16-year-old boy died on the street and was found right next to a black pickup truck. Police discovered Garcia inside the truck. He died on the way to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
The teen's family has identified him as Ron Jones. He lives a few blocks from where the shooting occurred. "We had just came in the house, and I heard the shots, and I came out the door and found my baby out there, and he was dead," said Jones' mother.
According to published reports, Garcia was on trial for second-degree murder, back in March. Authorities said Garcia chased down a thief who broke into his truck and stole his radio. A Miami-Dade judge in this case ruled Garcia acted in self-defense and was cleared of all charges.
Police have not made any arrests in the shooting.
