Man visiting Miami Beach Saturday night he fires one shot thankfully did that strike anyone near thirteenth street and RC wall. He then goes we track among video surveillance he then goes to fourteenth street and Collins avenue a very congested area. This time he fired multiple shots and strikes an individual.

Very dangerous man for the from there he walks down by the sea walls. And fires a shot right along ocean drive but doesn't hit anybody there are no calls into Belize no thankfully does not strike anybody what's. A little bit alarming as we get we receive not 1911 call he goes from there overtook Collins I'm just a few blocks away. Few blocks away just really a couple minutes away gets and has some sort of altercation. With he with the man who died. And that's where several rounds or fired he strikes in each and every time which rendered today. Any word on a motive here.
