A 19-year-old was killed Thursday evening after a man in a car shot him with an assault rifle, Miami police said.
The incident took place about 5 p.m. in the 200 block of Northwest 56th Street, police said. Dominique Jackson was seen talking to a person inside a black car, who then pulled out an assault rifle and shot him.
The victim was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died.
Police interviewed residents who live in apartment complexes in the neighborhood, but had not determined who shot the man or why.
How do they know it was an assault rifle? Can they tell by the wound or by examining the bullet?
Do you think the Miami Police know what they're talking about when they use the term "assault rifle?"
