Posted November 19, 2018 06:22:22A Miami man was charged with murder Thursday in the fatal shooting death of an unarmed woman who was shot by her estranged husband during an argument.
According to Miami-Dade County District Attorney Gwen Garcia, a police report filed Thursday says 35-year-old Darnell Williams was at the apartment of a woman and her 5-year, 11-month-old son on Wednesday when he and his girlfriend began arguing over a recent trip to Mexico.
The girlfriend told police Williams and the child told her to leave.
When she told them she had to go, Williams reportedly went to the door and began shooting the child, the report said.
A neighbor saw the shooting and called 911, and an ambulance arrived on the scene.
Williams was arrested and taken to a Miami hospital where he was pronounced dead at 5:24 a.m.
He was charged in Miami with first-degree murder, and his bail was set at $1 million.
His next court date is scheduled for February 17.
