Man killed in Riviera Beach drive-by shooting

A man is dead after a Riviera Beach drive-by shooting Sunday afternoon in broad daylight.

Riviera Beach police say a 23-year-old man and his girlfriend were getting into a car along West 28th Street around 2:30 p.m.

According to police, the man's girlfriend was already in the car and the victim was in the process of entering the vehicle.  That's when a man got out of a dark-colored Dodge Charger, that was driving slowly down the street, and shot at them.

The man died at the scene and his girlfriend was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

"It scares the mess out of me," a neighbor said. "Because I don’t want to get hurt and I especially don’t want my children to get hurt."

Police believe two vehicles traveling together were involved in the homicide. They said a silver Nissan Juke followed the dark-colored Dodge Charger the shooter was riding in.

They haven't released any additional information about a shooter other than that it is a man.

 “For it to be a drive by, oh wow, that just makes me want to move out because I don’t want nothing to happen to my children or myself,” said a neighbor named Christi.

Police ask anyone with information to call them at 561-845-4123 or call Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.

There were witnesses to the shooting and they are cooperating with police.
