    Man is shot at Aventura Mall

    I was there last week getting a hair cut

    Police are investigating a shooting that left one man dead in the parking lot of a Macy's at Aventura Mall at 8 p.m., on Sunday.

    Police reports indicate they responded to a robbery at the mall at 19501 Biscayne Boulevard, but it is unclear if it is related to the shooting. More updates later.

    You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.

    Update: Man shoots woman, kills self at Aventura mall

    Murder - suicide except he (the shooter) is dead and she (the victim) is in stable condition. Hope she recovers well.

    By Akilah Johnson | South Florida Sun-Sentinel 10:47 AM EDT, May 5, 2008

    AVENTURA - A man shot a Macy's employee at the Aventura Mall as she left work Sunday night, then shot and killed himself in an attempted murder-suicide, Aventura police said.

    Someone called police about 7:20 p.m. to say they heard gunshots in the Macy's parking garage at the mall, police Lt. Michael Bentolila said.

    Officers arrived and found a bleeding 45-year-old woman and 36-year-old man, both Miami-Dade County residents.

    Police had not released their names late Sunday because their families had not yet been notified.

    "She had a gunshot wound in the neck and shoulder region," Bentolila said. "He had a gunshot wound to the head."

    Both were flown to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, where he was pronounced dead and she was in stable condition Sunday.

    "It appears to be a domestic relationship," Bentolila said. That possibility was under investigation Sunday.

    The woman had just finished her shift at work and was walking to her car when the man shot her, police said.

    Then he committed suicide, police said.

    The motive for the shooting was still under investigation Sunday night.

    Officers recovered the gun from the scene, and detectives reviewed security camera images to determine what occurred.

    Mall shooter was undeterred by restraining order

    And there we have it; paper force field vs. armed attacker;

    BY DAVID OVALLE

    The man who shot a woman and then killed himself inside an Aventura Mall parking garage has been identified as Alejandro Ruiz, 36.

    Police believe Ruiz attacked a former lover, a 44-year-old Macy's employee Sunday night. The woman, who has not been identified, was walking to her car.

    Wounded in the neck and shoulder, she is recovering at a hospital. Ruiz put the gun to his head and shot himself dead, police say.

    In April, he was arrested for breaking into his ex-girlfriend's apartment in Miami Lakes.

    According to a Miami-Dade police report, he had moved out on April 24, returning his set of keys to the woman's father.

    Ruiz ''did not have any of his property inside the apartment and had completely moved out,'' a report said.

    But three days later, police say, Ruiz opened a window, climbed inside and began arguing with the woman.

    Ruiz ''told the victim that he was taking her cellphone because she would not take his calls. [Ruiz] also stole the victim's car keys,'' according to a police report.

    His ex-girlfriend later filed a temporary restraining order against Ruiz. By law, someone with a restraining order against him cannot carry a firearm.

    Ruiz had been working at Ultimate Flyers in Hialeah, with his old pal Jorge Caragol.

    He had been with the woman for about four or five years, and later stayed with the Caragols in Miramar for brief spell. On Friday, he left to stay with a cousin, said Lilian Caragol, Jorge Caragol's wife.

    She called him a great salesperson.

    ''He would always say he could talk a cat out of a fish truck because he was so good at doing sales,'' Lilian Caragol said. ``He was always happy and really talkative.''
