“I heard about 10 shots,” Abdul recalled.
A round entered the passenger’s side window. Garcia’s truck veered off the road, between two light poles and a fence, and crashed into a parked black van just across the street from the market.
Miami police was likely an innocent victim struck down when two rival gangs began shooting at each other. The shooting also claimed the life of 16-year-old Ron Dwayne Jones, whose body was found nearby.
So far, no arrests have been made. Abdul said Jones was a customer, but that Garcia did not interact with him much.
