MIAMI, Florida- The Miami Herald reports two men, including a City of Miami firefighter, were killed in an early morning drive-by in Brownsville on Saturday.
Firefighter Chadrick Davis, 23, a two-year veteran of the department, is the son of retired Fire Lieutenant Malcolm Davis and the godson of Fire Chief Maurice Kemp.
The second victim has been identified as Sirernest Williams, 22, according to CBS4.
The two were fatally shot around 1:30 a.m. in a drive-by after attending a wake at a home at 4331 NW 31st Ct.
The wake they were attending was reportedly for Williams’ best friend, killed earlier in the week, CBS4 reported.
“They was burying his best friend today,” said Maxine McKinnon, Williams’ grandmother. “Now they got to bury him. He got a baby on the way, yeah. He just had a reveal shower last week, Saturday. And he was there, and his friend who got killed, he was supposed to be the godfather. And they killed him.”
The City of Miami issued a statement Saturday morning.
“I am very saddened by the loss of one of our firefighters and the continued senseless violence in our community. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and to all of our firefighters” said Miami City Manager Daniel J. Alfonso.
Police are searching for several suspects. If you have any information on this shooting, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
