    A man who was walking his dog Saturday night is dead after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Little Havana.

    It happened just before 10 p.m. Saturday as the man crossed Northwest 12th Avenue.

    When the man crossed the street, he was hit by an SUV, which knocked him a great distance and ultimately wedged his body underneath a parked white car.

    The SUV was allegedly speeding while traveling south on Northwest 12th Avenue.

    Witnesses said the driver of the SUV got out, looked at the victim, hopped back into the vehicle and drove off.

    Police and firefighters were called. They performed a technical rescue, ultimately lifting the car off the victim, who was unresponsive, not breathing and without a pulse.

    Paramedics revived the man and rushed him to Ryder Trauma in extremely critical condition. He later died from his injuries.

    The dog apparently showed up by itself back at the owner's home, which tipped off family members, who then stumbled upon the scene.

    Police are looking for a silver or gray Nissan Pathfinder with extensive front-end damage.

    Northwest 12th Avenue remained shut down at Northwest Fourth Street Saturday night.

    A Miramar man was arrested after he threw a pot of macaroni and cheese at his daughter because she refused to clean it, police said.

    Godfrey Lucas, 52, was arrested Sunday on a charge of child abuse without great bodily harm.

    The 16-year-old girl told Miramar police that she got into an argument with Lucas because she refused to wash the dishes after she cooked some macaroni and cheese for herself.

    According to the police report, Lucas put soap and water in the pot, which still had food in it, and left it on the floor near his daughter's bedroom. She told police that she took the pot and put it on the floor near where Lucas was standing, telling him that she wasn't finished eating.

    Lucas then picked up the pot and threw it at her, hitting her in the arm, the report said.

    An officer called to the domestic dispute wrote in the report that he could see food on the girl's shirt and arm and "noticed redness and slight bruising" on the arm where the pot hit her. He also wrote that the pot was dented and said he saw food scattered on the floor.

    The death of a 2-year-old girl who was found unconscious and unresponsive at her home near Fort Lauderdale has been ruled a homicide.

    Broward Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said Monday that the death Thursday was ruled a homicide after the results of a medical examiner's autopsy.

    The trial of a man who fatally shot his wife and then posted a picture of her body on Facebook ended early Monday because a witness scheduled to testify for the defense was hospitalized and unable to appear in court.

    Derek Medina claims that he shot his wife in self-defense in their South Miami townhouse in August 2013. Police said Medina uploaded a photo of her body to Facebook after the shooting.

    An expert in crime scene reconstruction was scheduled to testify, but defense attorney Saam Zangeneh informed the judge that his witness is hospitalized with a blood clot.

    "It's become abundantly clear to this court that over the last 24 hours of court time that the defense has been trying to build an error, OK?" Miami-Dade County Judge Yvonne Colodny told Zangeneh. "You knew that this was an issue (but) never indicated to the court that the witness would not be available on Monday. You actually said, 'He will be here on Monday.'"

    Attorneys for the defense and the prosecution agreed to depose the witness in the hospital Monday afternoon and play the recorded testimony for the jury Tuesday.

    Police are searching for two gunmen who were caught on surveillance video opening fire during a Halloween robbery inside a Walgreens in southwest Miami-Dade County.

    The robbery was reported Halloween evening at a Walgreens on the corner of Southwest 112th Avenue and Southwest 232nd Street.

    Surveillance video showed the robbers wearing hooded sweatshirts and gloves.

    Miami-Dade police said the two men held an employee at gunpoint and demanded money from the register. Video showed the men yanking the cash registers from the counter and trying to run out the front door.

    However, a retired police officer was in the parking lot and witnessed the robbery.

    When the robbers saw the man standing outside, one of the gunmen yelled to the other, "It's the police. Shoot him. Shoot him."

    Video showed the gunmen shooting at the door. The bullets shattered the windows, but the crooks missed and the former officer returned fire with his own gun.

    Both robbers ran out through a back door and into their getaway car.

    Nobody was injured in the shooting.

    The Broward Sheriff's Office is looking for a man they say stole a little boy's iPad at a Tamarac fast-food restaurant.

    Video captures the moment the thief swiped the tablet after the 7-year-old boy leaves it unattended while walking around a McDonald's at 7600 N.W. 57 Street.

    The incident occurred on Nov. 6.

    In the video, the boy, who was at the restaurant with his aunt, can be seen placing the iPad on a table near the playground. A male seated nearby gets up, walks towards the tablet and removes it from the table.

    Surveillance video then shows the suspect walking around the restaurant with the tablet under his arm.

    The suspect is described as a tall, heavy-set adult male, possibly in his 50's with short hair.

    The incident is similar to when a 4-year-old had his iPad stolen while sitting inside a Tamarac hair salon in August. Aaron Sapp was arrested and charged with armed robbery and probation violations for that crime. The iPad was replaced with a donation from Olympic gold medal boxer Harold Davis, Jr.

    Miami-Dade police said a horse that was reported stolen from property in the Redlands was found dead Monday nearby.

    Sandy Fobb, the owner of the horse named Thunder, said she believes the horse was taken from her property sometime between midnight and 7 a.m. Sunday.

    "I see them all out here, and they came up to greet me and there was one missing this morning," Fobb said.

    Fobb told police she then found two sections of her fence had been sliced open.

    "It looked like a truck and a trailer had pulled up there and cut the fence and just loaded him up," she said.

    Details on how the horse may have died have not been released.

    Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at (305)471-8477.

    A South Florida man was fatally shot Sunday night on his last day of work during a Boynton Beach liquor store robbery.

    Boynton Beach police spokeswoman Stephanie Slater said Ali Arezoumandifar, 79, of Jupiter, was killed in a shooting at the Liquor Market on Congress Avenue.

    Slater said a customer called police shortly after 8 p.m. upon finding Arezoumandifar dead on the floor.

    Detectives learned that Arezoumandifar had recently sold the store and was continuing to work there to help the new owner get acclimated to the business. Arezoumandifar planned to retire at the end of Sunday night's shift.

    Slater said there were surveillance cameras inside the store, but there was no video of the robbery. Detectives are trying to see if there is any surveillance video from neighboring businesses.

    The same store was robbed less than a month ago. In the Oct. 27 robbery, Arezoumandifar told detectives that he was behind the counter when a masked man grabbed the scratch-off lottery ticket tray from the top of the counter and ran out of the store with it.

    Arezoumandifar chased the robber, who got into a car and sped away. Arezoumandifar was injured trying to reach into the car as the robber put his foot on the gas pedal.

    The same investigator who was assigned to Sunday's shooting also investigated the earlier robbery. He remembered telling Arezoumandifar that he shouldn't have chased the robber because his life is more valuable than any amount of money.

    "From what I got to know, that's his personality," Detective Marco Villari said.

    Family members said they had gathered for a surprise dinner to celebrate the occasion, but Arezoumandifar never made it home.

    "He did not deserve the way he died," daughter Sohelia Marchal told reporters Monday.

    Arezoumandifar's son, Alex Arezoumandifar, called his father a hard-working and good, decent man.

    "He cared about the family all the time," Alex Arezoumandifar said.

    Deputies arrested a 17-year-old male Monday in connection with a shooting that injured two teenagers Friday in northwest Miami-Dade.

    Isaiah Bailey is charged with attempted felony murder with a firearm in the shooting at Northwest 57th Street and 24th Avenue. Shania Lowery (pictured below), 15, was shot in the leg and Dayton Davis, 16, was grazed.

    Deputies said the victims knew the alleged gunman and that they attended the same schools in the past.

    According to the Broward Sheriff's Office, Lowery and Davis were in front of the residence when they heard gunshots.

    Kim Lowery said she was waiting for her daughter when the shots were fired.

    "All we heard was the gunshots, and I just froze," Kim Lowery said. "(Shania) didn't fall to the ground. She didn't try to run to the car. She tried to run to the house and that's when she got shot."

    Shania Lowery later identified Bailey as the gunman from a school photo.

    Deputies said Bailey admitted he was in the area at the time of the shooting.

    Police said they have found the car involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a man who was walking his dog in Miami.

    Pedron Gonzalez, 33, was struck and killed by a speeding car Saturday night as he attempted to cross Northwest 12th Avenue. The impact was so great that his body became wedged underneath a parked car.

    Witnesses told police that the driver of the car got out, looked at the victim, got back into the car and drove off.

    Gonzalez was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center, where he later died.

    Carmen Montoya told Local 10 News that her only son's dog returned home alone, scratching on the door.

    Miami police said the green Chrysler 300 with front-end damage was found Monday parked outside a home on the corner of Northwest 12th Avenue and Northeast Fourth Street.

    "Once we put out the make and model of that vehicle, tipsters started calling us," Miami police Officer Kenia Fallat told Local 10 News.

    No arrests have been made.

    A worldwide travel alert for Americans has some people at Miami International Airport thinking twice about flying this Thanksgiving.

    "My mom, she was very nervous when we were booking the trip to Miami," Jamie Song told Local 10 News. "She was thinking maybe we shouldn't go (and) we should just stay in New York."

    Authorities believe the likelihood of terrorist attacks will continue as members of ISIS return from Syria and Iraq. Additionally, there is a continuing threat from unaffiliated persons planning attacks inspired by major terrorist organizations, but conducted on an individual basis.

    About 25 million people are expected to travel this holiday season. That's an increase of 3 percent from last year.

    "You're going to see a lot of increased security here today, and you're going to not see a lot of increased security here today," Miami-Dade Aviation Department director Emilio T. Gonzalez told Local 10. "Because the plan is to make it as transparent as possible."

    Transportation Security Administration full-time airport security staffing levels continue to decrease due to a shrinking budget. That means travelers can expect a longer-than-normal wait in security lines.

    "Hopefully we got here in time," Evan Martin told Local 10. "And you'll see me looking around the corner to see how long those lines are."

    Standing in front of Miami Northwestern Senior High School, community leaders and educators vowed Tuesday to take a stand against the gun violence that has plagued their neighborhood.

    "Which leaves me to ask you, do we really, really care about our children?" Miami-Dade County school board member Dr. Dorothy Bendross-Mindingall said.

    In the past six months, violence in the community has reached a fever pitch. Seven Northwestern students have been shot, four of them fatally.

    Two other teenagers were shot last week as they standing in front of a home near Northwest 57th Street and Northwest 24th Avenue.

    Shots were also fired Friday night near Traz Powell Stadium during a football game between Miami Carol City and Miami Central Senior high schools.

    "Mothers and fathers and relatives cannot come to a football game and enjoy Friday night lights without some idiots shooting in a stadium full of crowded people," educator Dr. Steve Gallon said.

    Community leaders are asking for more after-school programs designed to teach children about gang violence and added extracurricular activities to keep students at school longer.

    "Some of our children are gravitating to gangs, and this is because they're not getting the proper love and attention at home," community leader William DC Clark said. "Ironically, the gang members give them the love and the respect that they seek."

    They are also asking the community to break away from the "code of silence" that Miami-Dade County Public Schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho spoke about after the shooting that claimed the life of Johnny Lubin.

    A former postal employee was arrested Monday after he solicited potential investors for a fake gold and diamond investment opportunity in Africa, police said.

    Lawyer Stanley Jr. is charged with one count of organized scheme to defraud, one count of first-degree grand theft and one count of third-degree grand theft.

    The Florida Office of Financial Regulation said Stanley, who worked as a letter carrier for the U.S. Postal Service, solicited investments primarily from resident on his mail route, co-workers and acquaintances.

    Investigators said Stanley promised some investors that he would double their investments and guaranteed certain investors millions of dollars in returns. Instead, investigators said Stanley bilked at least $2.1 million from the victims.

    In addition to the gold and diamond ventures, investigators said Stanley also persuaded victims to invest in a large-scale infrastructure project for which he claimed to have exclusive contracts with governments in Africa.

    Authorities said Stanley spent the majority of the funds on personal living expenses or cash withdrawals.

    Stanley was arrested in Hallandale Beach. He was being held at the main Broward County jail on $50,000 bond.
