Opa-Locka Shooting : Owner of an Opa-locka business accused of enticing man to store with intent to kill him in Miami

When an Opa-locka company owner confronted a man he thought might be a burglary suspect on Friday, he decided to take matters into his own hands. As a result, police arrested him on suspicion of attempted murder.

The shooting took place at Aviation Commerce Park, which is situated in the 13400 block of Northwest 38th Court, at approximately one in the afternoon.

The owner of the company, Kevin Francisco Munoz, allegedly received information that a “unknown male” was in his establishment. Rather than calling the police, he drove to the area and confronted an individual outside the shop who he thought was the burglar.

According to Opa-locka police, Munoz, 28, drove up in his pickup truck and saw the victim standing next to his car.

Munoz armed himself, got out of his truck, and shot the victim many times, according to police, though some of the report detailing what transpired next was deleted.

The report claims that he informed officers that the individual had previously broken into his place of work.

The patient was flown by ambulance to the Ryder Trauma Centre at Jackson Memorial Hospital. As of Monday morning, the police had not released a condition report.

As of Monday morning, Munoz—a resident of Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood—was being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Centre, per prison records.
