Singer Island shooting, now homicide investigation

RIVIERA BEACH, FL (WFLX)  Riviera Beach police have opened a homicide investigation following a shooting Sunday night at 2701 North Ocean Drive.

Police say two men confronted 40-year-old Kemal Muslimovic,  and a woman who were returning home around 10:31 p.m.

According to police, there was a struggle and Muslimovic, who was confronted,  was shot in the chest in front of his condominium.

The victim was transported to St. Mary's Medical Center where he later died.

"It's a concern especially this time of the year when you know when a lot of people on the island have children who are visiting because of the time of the year,"  neighbor Renee Lynch said.

Investigators say the motive appears to be robbery because Muslimovic, who was said by neighbors to be a waiter at a restaurant, carried a lot of cash.

The woman who was with him wasn't injured in the attempted robbery.

Police say the suspects are both black. One is 5'9" and weighs 140-150 lbs. He is approximately 18-19 years of age and has a low hair cut.  He was wearing a gray shirt.  A description of the other suspect was not released.

"I heard detectives knocking on the door at 1:30 in the morning.  (Police) walked into a neighbors bedroom while he was sleeping and was searching for, I guess, people that may have been involved in that murder," James Donohue who just moved to the area said.

The suspects were last seen running south toward Ocean Drive. 

Other neighbors said Muslimovic was a pretty nice guy who pretty much kept to himself at his apartment.

Anyone with information should call Detective Aguirre at (561) 882-3514, ext. 23 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.
