    A 20-year-old man is dead after a shooting that involved three vehicles Sunday at about 6:30 a.m.

    Police were called to the area of Southwest 268th Street and Southwest 115th Court after reports were made that shots were fired at a vehicle.

    Police said when they arrived they found a Nissan Altima in a canal with two men inside. One had minor injuries and the other, Wagnes Flerilien, was dead.

    According to the Miami-Dade Police Department, an investigation led officers to the area of Southwest 124th Avenue and Southwest 268th Street, where they found a gray Infiniti with two victims with minor injuries.

    Police said they are now searching for the third vehicle, and the people who were in it, that left the area in an unknown direction.

    Anyone with any information on the incident is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 305-471-8477.

    Many  Local 10 News viewers, just like you, have called Christina for help.  Here are just a few of the viewer stories that got results in our community after contacting the Call Christina team.

    Margie Daniels' phone is working  now, but that wasn't always the case especially when there's bad weather.

    "Everything  goes off! No telephone, no lights, no nothing," said Daniel. She's called AT&T many times.

    "They have to come back and put it on," said Daniels. The pole in her yard is leaning and the trees are over grown around it, so Local 10 News decided to call AT&T for her and received a response.

    "The guy said that they can't take the tree down. They said, 'We are going to trim the tree back.' They're going to change the pole, they are going to put in another transformer," Daniels said. "I didn't know who to call, but I always watch TV and it said Call Christina.  So I said I'm going to Call Christina, and by the time I called Christina y'all called me back."

    "This is identical to the old fridge except it's got LED lights which is really beautiful.  It's a nice feature," Denise Beard, who contacted the Call Christina team when she was having trouble with a refrigerator she purchased, said.

    "Within five months, my ice maker wasn't working, the seal was leaking,  beverages on the top shelf were frozen, my vegetables were getting frozen," Beard said.  

    She called for warranty service with the manufacturer, and even tried to get it fixed with her extended warranty when the 1-year warranty ran out. 

    "It was a total of 13 service calls," Beard said.

    Beard called Local 10 News investigative reporter Christina Vazquez, who contacted the store she purchased the fridge from.

    "I was just completely frustrated and over whelmed," Beard said. The store gladly replaced the refrigerator.

    "The water heater is here.  It was from 1966," Lawrence Doane said.

    Doane gave the Call Christina team a phone call claiming the plumber who installed his new water heater didn't install in correctly.

    "About an hour or so after he left I noticed it was leaking," Doane said.

    He bought it from Sears, so he called them and they said they would take care of it but the plumber never returned. 

    "I was going through this for about two to three months," he said. "How can a corporation as big as Sears do business this way and have happy customers? I was appalled and surprised."

    The Call Christina team reached out to Sears and they responded. 

    "Finally when Sears got back to me after I got Christina involved, they assured me it would be taken care of and it was within a week," Doane said.

    A Broward County judge who made headlines after her DUI arrest last year has agreed to a 90-day unpaid suspension and a public reprimand under the terms of an agreement with the Florida Judicial Qualifications Commission.

    Judge Lynn Rosenthal agreed to the suspension, reprimand, 12 hours of continuing legal education in ethics, family counseling and the repayment of fees and costs associated with the JQC's investigation, according to a JQC filing obtained Monday by Local 10 News.

    "Judge Rosenthal has acknowledged that some of her answers during her testimony before the commission were incomplete and misleading," Duval County Judge James Ruth, vice chairman of the JQC, wrote in the report filed Friday. "The judge has explained that her lapse in judgment was borne out of personal family crisis, which Judge Rosenthal has acknowledged caused her best judgment to be overcome by a desire to protect her family and the judge's own difficulty in dealing with the family crisis. Judge Rosenthal now also acknowledges that her conduct eroded public confidence in the judiciary and demeaned the judicial office she holds."

    Rosenthal, who pleaded guilty to a lesser charge after her DUI arrest in May 2014, told Local 10 News that she was "sleep driving" when her sport utility vehicle plowed into a deputy's cruiser in the parking lot of the Broward County courthouse.

    She blamed the crash on Ambien, a sleep-inducing pill for which she is prescribed, that she took the night before.

    "I was sleep driving and unaware of what I was doing until long after I got to the courthouse," Rosenthal told Local 10's Bob Norman.

    Ruth also wrote that Rosenthal admitted to erasing "pertinent records" from her cellphone and provided "some misleading or incomplete statements to the commission during her testimony." Ruth wrote that Rosenthal's actions "brought disrepute" to the judicial system.

    The JQC said that Rosenthal intentionally destroyed cell phone video evidence that it had requested. After her arrest, Rosenthal told BSO that a truck had tried to run her off the road earlier that morning on Interstate 595 and showed the deputy a cell phone video she had taken of the incident. The deputy reported that the video only showed her vehicle weaving in and out of traffic before it collides with a guard wall.

    After the JQC requested that Rosenthal turn over that video, she gave her phone to her husband "who deleted the entire contents of the phone, including the Judge's video," according to the JQC's stipulation.

    "When asked why she would not preserve evidence that was referenced in Notice of Investigation, the Judge apologized, expressing her belief that the video was not an issue since she had already acknowledged being impaired while driving to work that morning," the JQC reported. "As a result of the Judge's actions, the Commission was unable to independently review the video."

    Rosenthal had her DUI charge reduced to reckless driving and was sentenced to three months of probation and 25 hours of community service.

    Her actions didn't seem to dissuade voters, however, as Rosenthal was re-elected last August.

    The recommendation for a 90-day suspension goes to the Florida Supreme Court which can accept or reject it. If the court rejects the suspension, Rosenthal will be subjected to a trial in which her judgeship could be at stake.

    A Hialeah Gardens man faces animal cruelty and other charges after he was found loading a dead sheep onto the bed of a pickup truck stopped on the side of a street, police said.

    Robel Morales, 46, was arrested Sunday on three counts of animal cruelty and one count each of burglary and possession of burglary tools.

    According to the police report, an officer was called to a burglary near Northwest 102nd Avenue and Northwest 138th Street when he saw a man placing something into the bed of a pickup truck stopped on the side of the street. The officer also saw a man sitting in the driver's seat with a knife next to him.

    The driver told the officer that he had a flat tire, pointing to the front left tire, but the officer said in the report that the tire wasn't flat.

    Police said the man by the back of the truck was identified as Morales, who tried to run off after the officer noticed a dead Barbados Blackbelly sheep on the truck's bed.

    Morales was quickly taken to the ground and detained until other officers arrived, the report said.

    "The sheep that was discovered in the back of the truck was freshly slaughtered," the report said. "There were two more by the fence of the property ready to be loaded onto the truck."

    Police said the sheep's owner was called and took possession of the dead animals.

    Morales was arrested and taken to the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.

    The Miami Beach Marine Patrol is in charge of responding to crimes on the water, helping boaters in distress and keeping people safe who live in waterfront homes.

    "We encounter some bad guys at times," said officer Vincent Canete.

    Unlike many communities on dry land -- where burglars like to strike during the day when folks are at work -- police said crooks like to hit waterfront homes at night. One reason: some are not well-lit on the water-side.

    "This place at night -- this is a very dark place," said officer Larry Marrero.

    If crooks aren't after belongings inside homes, police said they'll go after the toys outside.

    "They're out here scouting for new jet skis, and they're actually out here looking for the easy pickings," Canete said.

    Canete and Marrero encourage homeowners to lock up their personal watercraft, paddleboards and kayaks.

    They also want boat owners to tilt boat engines up, because the lower units on motors can easily be stolen in the down position.

    "The lower units on the boats are worth about $4,000, the propellers another $700. They also do not have any serial numbers; the bad guy doesn't have to worry about being traced to that boat, that engine," Marrero said.

    Miami Beach police are also encouraging homeowners to put their addresses on the backs of their houses -- even along seawalls.

    It helps neighbors report any crimes they see from the water side, and it helps police find a home more easily.

    "Sometimes we're the first ones that know about the crime. We want to tell the officer on the street, 'This is where we're at,'" Marrero said.

    The FBI is investigating whether two bank robberies in Miami and Kendall are related.

    Special Agent Michael Leverock said the robberies happened about an hour-and-a-half apart Monday.

    The first robbery was reported about 11:30 a.m. at a Wells Fargo branch on Southwest 88th Street in Kendall, while the second robbery was reported about 1:05 p.m. at a Citibank branch on Biscayne Boulevard in Miami.

    Surveillance photographs released by the FBI appear to show the same man in both robberies. The robber wore a blue hat with a white emblem on the front.

    Nobody was injured in either robbery, and the FBI didn't say how much money, if any, was taken.

    Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call the FBI in South Florida at 754-703-2000.

    Local 10 News has learned of several past complaints about the Miami officer now suspended during an investigation into his actions with a handcuffed suspect.

    At least four people have filed complaints with Miami Police Department Internal Affairs against Officer John Hinson since he was hired in 2010.

    Wanda Bruce was one of them, alleging Hinson verbally treated her badly during a vigil she attended for a loved one.

    "He talked to people so nasty," Bruce said.

    Bruce told investigators that Hinson told her, "If you put your raggedy ass on my car again I'm going to arrest your raggedy ass and put you in the back seat of my car."

    Citing lack of witnesses, investigators found her complaint unsubstantiated.

    In 2012, according to city documents, Miami resident Jeffrey Mellerson claimed Hinson cursed and threatened to arrest him for trespassing in the rooming house where he rented.

    In 2010, Internal Affairs received separate complaints from men who claimed Hinson cursed and roughed them up.

    Because all complaints were deemed unsubstantiated, the president of Miami's Fraternal Order of Police Union calls them a "non-issue." He also insists the visuals on the cellphone video last Thursday show only part of a story.

    A resident of Liberty Square recorded the non-eventful arrest of a man for trespassing, after which Hinson puts him in the back seat of the patrol car in handcuffs, stands at the open back door, then apparently strikes at the handcuffed suspect, crawling in the back seat after him.

    "I don't see anyone getting struck in the video. I see a reaction, I see a struggle," said FOP President Javier Ortiz. "We don't know what happened in that vehicle. He could've spat on the officer, he could've threaten to spit on the officer or bite the officer. I don't know what they're going to say, that's why we're waiting like everyone else."

    Hinson is suspended with pay as his department investigates the incident seen on the cellphone video.

    A Miami man is facing charges after putting his family's 4-month-old kitten inside a refrigerator after having an argument with his wife, police said.

    Rafael Chacon, 24, was arrested Sunday on charges of animal cruelty and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

    According to an arrest report, Chacon and his wife of six months were inside their car, arguing because the wife wanted Chacon to stop at Big Lots so she could buy feminine products.

    Police said the couple arrived home with their two children and continued to argue. They said Chacon grabbed a knife and told his wife in Spanish, "You will bleed today."

    Responding officers said they found Chacon walking to the back of the complex where he was placed under arrest.

    Police said the children went back inside the home and found their kitten inside the fridge.

    Police said Chacon had left the cat inside the refrigerator for about 40 minutes.

    The cat's condition was not immediately released.

    A South Florida mother is outraged after she claims cellphone videos show her 17-year-old daughter hanging out at a Doral strip club with her 16-year-old friend and the friend's father.

    The teen's mother said the videos show the girls doing drugs and dancing provocatively onstage at the Pink Pony strip club, which was ordered shut last week.

    "The videos are clear. It's not like, maybe, you think. They're clear. He's in every single shot. He was the one who was giving them the drugs," the mother, who did not want to be identified, said.

    Jose Arguelles, 59, was arrested Tuesday on charges of child neglect, promoting sexual performance by a minor and allowing a minor to smoke marijuana and cocaine.

    According to an arrest report, Arguelles, who told detectives that he was a club promoter, admitted to taking the girls to the strip club and said he knew it was wrong.

    Police said Arguelles' daughter claimed that her father has been taking her and her 17-year-old friend to the strip club since she turned 16 in March. Police said she admitted to doing drugs and drinking inside the club.

    "My daughter is on stage. My daughter is inside the dressing rooms," the mother said. "It's sick. What he was doing is sick."

    Arguelles is being held at the Turner Guilford Knight correctional facility on a $45,000 bond.

    The club has since been shut down while the case is investigated.

    A love triangle may have led up to a fatal shooting at a Miami Beach high-rise last week, police said.

    Police said Richard Petik, 40, was shot Friday morning at the Flamingo South Beach apartment building.

    The shooting was reported about 9 a.m. at 1500 Bay Road.

    According to an incident report, officers found Petik dead inside the South Tower with several spent shell casings near him.

    Police said a person of interest, who is a doctor, was found in the south end of the second-floor bridge and immediately surrendered to responding officers.

    A man who claimed to have known Petik told Local 10 News that Petik was a former Army ranger. He said the victim had recently gotten into a rough lifestyle and had become addicted to drugs.

    The man said he initially thought Petik may have been targeted as a result of his new lifestyle.

    Gotsis said Petik was shot in the head. Petik has been arrested in the past on charges that included battery and disorderly conduct.

    No other people inside the building were injured.

    Police have not made any arrests in the case.

    One person was stabbed Monday in an apparent act of road rage on Interstate 95 in Deerfield Beach, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

    The incident was reported about 4: 15 p.m. on the Southwest 10th Street on-ramp to I-95.

    Sgt. Mark Wysocky said a driver used a knife or screwdriver to stab the passenger of another car during a dispute.

    Witnesses told Local 10 News reporter Michael Seiden that they saw a knife and said the victim had blood "pouring out of his side."

    That wounded passenger was taken to an Broward Health North with non-life-threatening injuries.

    Sky 10 was above the scene as a K-9 officer was searching the grass on the side of I-95, but authorities did not say whether they are still searching for the weapon.

    The FHP and Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating.

    The Miami-Dade Police Department is thanking members of the South Florida community for helping to renovate the home of slain officer Amanda Haworth's son.

    Haworth and her partner, Roger Castillo, were shot and killed on Jan. 20, 2011, while serving a warrant on a man wanted for murder.

    Since then, the Police Department has raised money and several companies have come together to assist in renovating the home of Austin Haworth.

    Haworth is just two days from beginning South Florida State College, where he will play baseball on a full scholarship.

    "It is hard. Especially now at this time when I don't have my mom around," Haworth said.

    Haworth immediately moved into a small but warm home with his new legal guardian after his mother's death.

    "To lose a family member in that split 17 seconds and it was done and over with and she was gone is -- I can't tell you how that hits you," Haworth's guardian, Jeri Mitchel said.

    Despite losing his mother, Haworth said he considers many of his mother's fellow officers his family and said he hopes to one day be a police officer as well.

    "When people tell you that if something would happen to you, that your family would be taken care of– it's true," Haworth said.

    A 27-year-old Honduran man wanted on a rape charge in Santa Barbara County, California, was arrested while passing through Miami International Airport last month.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Keith Smith said the man was taken into custody July 26, after he presented himself at the airport's customs area.

    Smith said CBP officers fingerprinted the suspect and confirmed that he had an outstanding warrant in California.

    "CBP officers work closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement partners to make sure wanted fugitives face justice," port director Christopher Maston said. "We remain vigilant and will continue to proactively address threats, minimize vulnerabilities and maximize security."

    The suspect was turned over to the Miami-Dade Police Department for extradition to California.

    His identity has not been released.

    The Florida Highway Patrol has released a description of a driver who stabbed the passenger of another car Monday in a road-rage incident on Interstate 95.

    The incident was reported about 4:15 p.m. on the Southwest 10th Street on-ramp to I-95 in Deerfield Beach.

    Troopers described the attacker as a black man between the ages of 40 and 50, who has a thin build with long dreads and a beard. He was last seen wearing a yellow shirt with tan pants.

    His vehicle is described as a 2000 dark gray Mercury Grand Marquis with custom rims and Florida tag EBAX29.

    Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Wysocky said the victim, identified as Nolan Goad, 22, was a passenger being driven by his girlfriend, Tawny Grogin, 22, in a red car.

    Wysocky said Grogin was traveling westbound on 10th Street when she was involved in an altercation with another driver. He said Grogin believed the driver was following her, so she pulled off the roadway believing he would continue southbound.

    Wysocky said the driver pulled over behind Grogin, got out of his car and approached her vehicle.

    According to troopers, Goad also got out of the car and got into a physical altercation with the driver, which is when he got stabbed.

    "You could see the blood just pouring out of his rib cage," witness Tony Curry told Local 10 News.

    Police K-9 officers searched the grass on the side of I-95 trying to find the knife used in the stabbing.

    Wysocky said the attacker fled the scene.

    Goad was taken to Broward Health North, where he was treated for minor injuries.

    Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the FHP at 954-837-4012.
