Young man dies after shot out at Miami.
Man dies after being shot in the head near Miami's Brownsville. Miami Police Department Officer Kenia Fallat said the teen suffered a gunshot wound to the back and was shot into Coral Gables Hospital where doctors declared him dead.
"At this time, the motive is uncertain," Fallat said Saturday afternoon. "no additional information is available."
"Please, allow me to find out who did so," the distraught mother said in Spanish.
The 17-year-old student's mother, Maria Alvarez, stated he had been murdered a block away from his home at Southwest 31st Avenue and Southwest Fourth Street near the iconic Versailles Cuban Bakery.
"Regardless of the motive for this horrific crime, our community has lost yet another young person before his 18th birthday," Carvalho wrote. "My thoughts and prayers are with those who adore Danny Alvarez."
Miami-Dade County schools superintendent Alberto Carvalho expressed outrage on Twitter.
A neighbor stated this is the second disaster to strike the Alvarez family.
Danny Alvarez used to play basketball on precisely the exact same street in Miami's Little Havana where he was murdered on Saturday. Witnesses said they discovered six gun shots that were likely coming out of a moving vehicle.
