NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A father was arrested after, police said, he fatally shot his son during an argument in Northwest Miami-Dade.

Sixty-eight-year-old Michael Tyndale was charged with second-degree murder. He appeared in court, Thursday afternoon.

“Good afternoon, sir, you were charged with one count of second-degree murder,” said Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Mindy S. Glazer.

Miami-Dade Police and Fire Rescue units responded to a domestic dispute along the 19000 block of West Lake Drive in Northwest Miami-Dade, Wednesday afternoon.

“[The address is] 19526 West Lake Drive. Person shot, ‘my father just shot me,'” a dispatcher said.

According to the arrest report, the family was inside the home when Tyndale and his son started arguing. Tyndale, armed with a handgun, then followed his son to the kitchen, pointed the gun at him, and fired a single shot, striking his son in the head.

Immediately after being shot, Tyndale’s son, identified as 44-year-old Markian Tyndale, fell to the ground but was able to dial 911, letting police know that his father shot him and that he was dying.

Cellphone video shot by a neighbor captured paramedics transporting Markian to the hospital.

“He was later airlifted to [HCA Florida] Aventura Hospital, where he sadly succumbed to his wounds,” said Miami-Dade Detective Andre Martin.

Tyndale, according to the arrest report, also called 911 following the shooting. He remained on the scene and was taken into custody by MDPD. He was then transported to the MDPD Homicide Bureau, where he invoked his right to an attorney.

Tyndale’s wife, who witnessed the shooting, was also detained and provided investigators with a sworn statement that he fatally shot their son.

Tyndale was arrested and was transported to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade.

The troubling news spread to the neighborhood, Thursday morning.

“When I saw all of these police tapes, I was like ‘Wow. This is unbelievable.’ This is horrible. This is just terrible, terrible, terrible,” said Lorena Rojas.

A woman stopped by to check on Mrs. Tyndale.

“I didn’t have any person, you know, and I’m here because her sister gave me her address, and I just wanted to check on her to see how everything was going,” said the woman.

A family is now left shattered, and a grieving mother and wife is left to pick up the pieces.

On Thursday night, 7News cameras captured a private hazmat crew walking in and out of the home as they cleaned up the crime scene.

It remains unclear what the argument between Tyndale and his son was about.

The wife and mother, who witnessed the shooting, told 7News that she told police everything that happened and she is done talking about it.

Michael Tyndale remains in jail with no bond.
