NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A community is speaking out after a 15-year-old was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting.
Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue officials responded to the scene, near Northwest Sixth Avenue and 105th Street, just after 6:15 p.m., Tuesday. Fifteen-year-old Callisto Logan was reportedly walking down the street after leaving a convience store when the shooting occurred.
Surveillance video from the store shows Logan and two friends inside the store minutes before the shooting. Logan is seen on the video looking back several times. After he leaves, he is shot outside. More video from outside the building capture a dark-colored car fleeing the scene.
“He was walking from the store with two girls, and that’s when they got him,” said Jeannette Aviles, a friend of Logan’s.
“Five, five shots,” said witness Rene Aguilar. “I’m feeling sad. In this neighborhood, never happen before.”
The shooting took place next to Aguilar’s home. “We see the guy bleeding in the leg,” he said. “We don’t see him bleeding on his body. When the police came, and they cut the T-shirt, then you see they shot him in the body.”
Jeannette Aviles, a friend of Logan, kept the helpless teen safe and as comfortable as possible until paramedics arrived.
“I came outside and saw him out laying on the floor,” she said. “I went out there and tried to help him, render aid to him, talk to him and tried to keep him up until paramedics got here. He wasn’t able to talk. All he could do was just look at me, like, ‘Help me, help me,’ but we couldn’t really do anything.”
Logan’s family was seen outside the Ryder Trauma Center grieving over their loss. “He never gave us any problems here,” said Jan Mann Opportunity School North’s Principal Samuel Johnson.
Logan attended Jan Mann Opportunity School before the shooting. “It’s a sad situation,” said Johnson. “Our hearts go out to the family.”
Gil Nieves lives next door to the Logan family and said the 15-year-old was nice teenager. “He’s a good kid,” said Nieves. “He’s just a normal teenager, you know? Ride his bike, plays football in the street.”
“They need to stop all this killing,” said Aviles. “Put the guns down and enjoy life, live life. They’re too young!”
Police said the only clue they have is the suspected gunman’s vehicle is dark-colored.
