Man shot, killed in alley behind Miami Beach karaoke bar

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A  man was killed Thursday night in a Miami Beach shooting.

City spokeswoman Melissa Berthier said the shooting happened at 11:45 p.m. Thursday in an alleyway behind Espanola Way outside the Kill Your Idol karaoke bar.

Berthier said a man got out of the passenger side of a white car and open fired at the victim, identified as Kamil Patel, 29. 

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

Berthier said the victim had recently moved to Miami Beach from Texas and was walking down the alley when he was shot. 

“When it happens so close to where we live, and it’s extremely close to where we were — that’s shocking,” Daniel Wessner, who was nearby when the shooting happened, said. 

Berthier said the shooter was wearing a hoodie and took off in a white sedan with a temporary tag. The tag number may be CC34319.

“The description of the shooter is a thin black male with medium-length dreadlocks, wearing a dark hoodie,” she said.

Detectives blocked off the area for hours as they investigated the scene in the alley.

“We were at Senor Frogs during that time, and when we exited, it was all closed off and there was police cars all over,” Wessner said.  

The Miami Beach Police Department is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
