    Miami, FL (AHN) - Miami police say at least one masked gunman armed with an AK-47 assault rifle shot into a crowd of people on a street corner Friday night killing two teenagers and wounding seven others.

    The shooting happened in the northwest Miami neighborhood of Liberty City on a street corner where a group of teenagers and young men were playing and watching a game of craps.

    Detectives say at least one gunman opened fire with an AK-47 and ran around the corner while continuing to fire his weapon. Police say they also found rounds from a second weapon.

    The victims who died were 16-year-old Brandon Mills and 18-years-old Derrick Gloster.

    Miami police Chief John Timoney said homicides from assault rifles comprised 29 percent of all murders in 2008.

    AK 47's don't kill by them selves, people Kill.
    We need people control, not Gun or assault weapon control.

    Pharmacist is first Fort Lauderdale murder victim of 2009

    Fort Lauderdale's first homicide of the year is a case of one man stabbed to death, allegedly by his former neighbor.


    A young pharmacist killed in his Fort Lauderdale apartment and left there for days was slain by his former neighbor in a fight, police said Wednesday.
    Erik Trimarelli was 26 and hailed from the suburbs of Philadelphia. The licensed pharmacist had recently moved to Fort Lauderdale from Deerfield Beach, where he had lived since March 2007.
    Police said he was stabbed to death Jan. 12 by Raul Cintron, 34, who had lived for about a week and a half in the unit next to his in a triplex in the 900 block of Northeast 16th Court.
