MIAMI FL Sept 9 2014 Police are investigating the shooting death of a security officer found shot to death in his vehicle.
According to officials, Juan Marimon, 52, was found shot multiple times at 3:45 a.m. at N.E. 6 Avenue & 129 Street.
The body of the man was found in a grocery store parking lot across from an apartment complex where he was a security guard.
Officials believe the shooting took place at the apartment complex and the man possibly tried to drive to a hospital, but could not make it there.
A resident, only identified as Don, at the complex said the building security guard for the complex is the man who was shot.
“I couldn’t believe he got shot,” said Don. “You’re being paid to secure the building and you’re shot and killed.”
Blood stains could be seen at the entrance of the apartment building Sunday afternoon.
Police said the security officer likely tried to drive himself from the building to the parking lot at the Publix across the street.
“It’s a parking lot that’s lit and it’s possible that he thought someone might have been working at that Publix,” said Major Neal Cuevas with the North Miami Police Department.
Witnesses in the area of the shooting said they heard three to four gunshots.
Anyone with information about the crime can call Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS.
