Statement from Commissioner Dennis C. Moss on the arrest of teen suspected in drive-by killing of 7-year-old Amiere Castro


(MIAMI, FL) - "Help from the community led to the arrest of the alleged shooter and his accomplices in the murder of 7-year-old Amiere Castro. This demonstrates how Richmond Heights and other neighborhoods can begin to rid themselves of these Community Terrorists who lack sense of respect for human life. These arrests are only the beginning. We must punish the guilty in this case to the full extent of the law, and apprehend and convict the others who are terrorizing our communities.

Thank you to the people who provided the leads in this case and to‎ the Miami-Dade Police Department for doing an outstanding job."
