Miami-Dade Police Department homicide detectives are investigating a shooting in the City of Opa-locka that left one person dead.

According to investigators, City of Opa-locka Police Department officers were dispatched to a report of shots fired in a warehouse district, located at 2155 Opa-locka Boulevard. The arriving officers located three victims. Joseph Gonzalez appeared to have been shot and was determined deceased on the scene by Miami-Dade Fire Rescue.
