DORAL, Fla. – A man badly shot his wife Sunday in a KFC / Taco Bell restaurant in Doral and then hit the gun on himself, Miami-Dade said police.
Alvaro Zabaleta, a spokesman for the police department in Miami-Dade County, said the shooting happened around kl. 11 in the fast food shop on Northwest 41st Street and Northwest 107th Avenue.
Witnesses said that the 53 year old man came to the restaurant and began to argue with his 51-year-old wife who was an employee. At one point the man took out a gun.
"She tried to get lost when she ran toward her back. He continued to shoot her-hit her several times," said Zabaleta.
The man committed suicide. Both were pronounced dead on stage.
Four other employees were in the restaurant at the shooting time, but no customers were present.
Detectives said the victims had had marital problems.
"House violence kills, they call it the silent crime, they are afraid to come and talk. And unfortunately, if you do not come out and talk, they escalate and end in tragedy like those we have today," Zabaleta said .
