MIAMI (WSVN) - Police are investigating a homicide after a man was shot and killed inside his car in Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood, leaving loved ones devastated and pleading for information.

According to City of Miami Police, the fatal shooting occurred in the area of Northwest 28th Avenue and Northwest Seventh Street, at around 1:15 a.m., Saturday.

Tatiana Amor said she’s trying to piece together what happened to her husband after she was notified of his death.

“I lost the love of my life today,” Amor said. “Today, my husband was murdered, was killed.”

Amor said that her husband, whom she identified as Raul, was a loving stepfather to her 7-year-old daughter.

“My husband was 29 years old, he was a great stepdad, and he’s going to be missed dearly,” she said.

“I got this horrible phone call, and I’m here at the crime scene. I’m trying to find out what happened. I’m trying to get answers,” she said.

The grieving wife said she’s desperately seeking to find answers surrounding her husband’s death and bring her family the closure that will ease their heartbreak.

“I beg you guys from the bottom of my heart, you know, anything that anybody may know would help today. It’s the holidays. I wouldn’t wish this upon nobody,” she said through sobs.

Police have yet to identify the victim, but Amor said that it’s her husband.

Detectives said they are currently reviewing surveillance footage.
