Derrick Houston Obituary, Death Cause – The victim of a fatal shooting that took place in Homestead on Saturday evening has been identified by the Miami-Dade Police Department. After receiving a ShotSpotter alert at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, the police responded to the incident. Officers found 19-year-old Derrick Houston Jr. suffering from several apparent gunshot wounds when they arrived at the area where the incident occurred.
NBC6 was told by a lady who claimed to be Houston Jr.’s girlfriend that he was walking away from the fight at the time he was shot. “They shot and killed the love of my life,” she added. “I’ll never get over what they did.” “Someone who looked after me and my child, even though it wasn’t his child, and loved him as if he were his own,” she said. He stood by my side during every difficult situation. Yes, he cleaned up his act, but he was only in the process of transforming. He was pronounced dead at the site by the responding firefighters from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. The suspects ran away in a route that is now unknown to us, and they are still at large.
According to the findings of the preliminary inquiry, there was a gathering at a residence in the neighborhood of SW 260 Terrace and SW 130 Avenue in Miami at the time when many men became involved in a verbal dispute on the street in front of the home. According to the statements made by the police, the argument turned into a physical altercation, and then someone pulled out a pistol and started shooting at Houston Jr., who was hit many times.
