A 43-year-old man was shot to death early Sunday on Okeechobee Road, authorities said.
The shooting followed an argument between two men about 7:30 a.m. at Okeechobee Road and Northwest 117th Avenue.
One pulled a gun, fatally wounding the other, said Detective Javier Baez, a Miami-Dade police spokesman. The victim's name was not released.
Police were looking for the gunman, who they said drove away in a white pickup truck.
Let's see, he was 43 years old so that means he was probably not a gang member. Plus Okeechobee Road is not in Liberty City. So, based on that, lets say this was just your everyday run-of-the-mill argument. In Miami though, just like in Houston and Newark, you take your life in your hands when you argue.
Two possible solutions I can see. One, don't argue with anyone. Even if it costs your self-respect and you feel like a punk, just don't argue with anyone. And two, carry a gun. This way you even up the odds, you don't have to back down from anybody and in a pinch, you can blow him away before he blows you away.
Which sounds best to you? Please leave a comment.
