1 dead after shooting outside Miami nightclub

MIAMI (WSVN) - City of Miami Police are investigating after a man was shot outside a Miami nightclub, Saturday morning.

Investigators responded to the scene, located at Northwest 23rd Street and 19th Avenue, where a perimeter was set up.

According to Miami Police, an argument between several men spiraled out of control at Nuevo Patio Restaurant and Lounge, located at Northwest 22nd Street and 19th Avenue, at around 6:45 a.m.

Officials said at least two men opened fire, hitting 34-year-old Leonardo Perera. The victim fled, and later collapsed near an apartment complex on Northwest 23rd Street.

“The one deceased fled down 19th Avenue and collapsed,” said Miami Police Officer Rene Pimentel.

Paramedics rushed Perera to Ryder Trauma Center just after 7 a.m., where he later died.

Police said there were multiple people involved in the shooting. However, no other victims have been reported.

Bloody clothing could be seen on the ground in front of one of the apartments.

Witness Alice Coley said she called 911 when she heard gunshots. “That’s what you’re supposed to do, ’cause I don’t want to see nobody laying out there, dying like that,” she said. “That’s what you’re supposed to do, get some help out here, ’cause you know we have a lot of kids around here.”

Police do not have anyone in custody at this time.

If you have any information on this shooting, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $3,000 reward.
