NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - A man who was shot at a North Miami Beach ATM was ambushed and fatally shot, Thursday morning, sparking a homicide investigation.
Police said 26-year-old Dillon Bud Calvin Steve was getting cash at one moment and then another, fighting for his life. He succumbed to his injuries not even a day after being rushed to Aventura Hospital.
Police said the shooting took place behind the Bank of America in the area of Northeast 163rd Street and 12th Avenue, at around 8:45 p.m., Wednesday.
“I feel very bad. It’s very sad,” said Marielle Dorvil. “That could happen to me or to my son or to my husband.”
Police said the shooting was likely a random incident, and it could have happened to anyone.
“It appears, at this time, he was stalking his victim,” said North Miami Beach Police Capt. Juan Pinillos. “We can’t even say right now that this victim was the intended victim or just a crime of opportunity.”
Officials said they have photos and videos of the suspected gunman, thanks to the numerous surveillance cameras around the bank. The shooter remains at large.
“He was wearing a black hoodie. I believe it’s an Ecko jacket. It says ‘HAHA’ on the back. It’s a type of hoodie that when you put it over your head and zip it up, it becomes a mask,” Pinillos said. “Unfortunately for him, he left his face exposed, and we have it here.”
“I have 30 detectives upstairs right now in a briefing, and we are going out, and we are gonna hunt this person down and bring justice,” said North Miami Beach Police Maj. Richard Rand.
Lucas Albasina, who works near the bank at the time of the shooting, said he heard a woman screaming after gunshots rang out on the day of the shooting. “She was saying, ‘Help! Help!'” he said.
By the time Albasina got outside, the gunman was gone, Calvin Steve was already in a van, and there was a woman trying to get help. “I don’t know if it was his mom, his wife or whoever; she was trying to get him to the hospital,” he said.
“That’s definitely frightful. I would only come here during the day,” said Jamie Johnson, a concerned resident. “People are trying to withdraw money. They don’t have to be worried about somebody coming to shoot them.”
