Five killed in Miami shoot-out
A Cuban immigrant shot and killed four people including his estranged wife before taking his own life early yesterday in Miami, police and local media said.
A sergeant with the Miami Police Department's homicide division who declined to give his name said the man, wielding a semi-automatic handgun, shot his victims inside a house in the city's Little Havana district shortly after midnight. He then sped off in a pick-up truck and turned the gun on himself at his home, which he had apparently set on fire, about 4.8 kilometres away.
"It was domestic-related," the sergeant said. "The wife left him and he tracked her down, unfortunately."
He declined to elaborate, saying the case was still under investigation.
