WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Police said a man who was arrested in connection to the shooting of two people in Northwest Miami-Dade was the same person who stole a transit bus in downtown Miami and abandoned it in the middle of traffic.
Lekambrick Hanna appeared before a judge on Sunday to face charges of second-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder and tampering with evidence.
But that wasn’t all. Police said he also was the culprit behind a stolen Miami-Dade Transit bus late Friday night, as well as an earlier attempted armed carjacking.
“You’re charged in this case with attempted robbery,” said the presiding judge.
If Hanna looks familiar, that’s because, police said, he pulled a similar stunt in May. He was arrested for taking off with a Miami-Dade Fire Rescue truck in North Miami Beach.
His joyride in that incident ultimately ended dozens of miles north, along the Florida Turnpike in Palm Beach County.
Investigators said Hanna’s latest crime spree began sometime on Friday.
Police said the suspect apparently slipped behind the wheel of the transit bus after the driver has stopped for a break at the Stephen P. Clark Center.
Investigators said he ditched the bus on an Interstate 95 off-ramp located across from the Whole Foods near Southeast Third Avenue and Third Street.
The next day, detectives said, shots were fired in the area of Northwest 143rd Street and 16th Court at around noon.
“It was rapid, just nonstop,” said a witness who asked not to be identified or show her face on camera.
Police said the shots were fired into a Buick, killing one person and critically injuring another.
Investigators said Hanna shot the duo in front of his home, located on that same block.
“It was broad daylight, you know? Like, hearing gunshots, it’s nerve-racking,” said the witness.
Hanna arrest report states, “The defendant walked toward the driver’s door with a firearm … pointed the firearm at the driver window and discharged multiple shots.”
The suspect’s sister apparently gave him up to police. Now the accused carjacker and murderer isn’t going anywhere, at least for now.
“Just imagine what could have happened,” said the witness.
Hanna was out on probation for a charge of resisting arrest from earlier this year. It’s unclear what exactly happened with the charges associated with the theft of the MDFR truck.
Hanna is currently being held without bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in West Miami-Dade.
