Woman killed, man injured in Miami Gardens shooting

A woman is dead and a man was injured after shots were fired early Tuesday in Miami Gardens.

Police told Local 10 News that Paula Danis, 69, was found dead at a home near Northwest 17th Place and Northwest 157th Street. Jude Danis, 32, was wounded.

He was airlifted to a hospital. A medical helicopter landed at nearby North Dade Middle School.

Sky 10 flew above the scene, where a body on the ground was covered by a tarp.

"My neighbor said there was a body lying out in the yard," Willie Harrell, who lives nearby, said.

The SWAT team was called to the scene.

"I heard, like, somebody was chasing somebody, and I heard a lot of gunshots," Harrell said.

Jasmine Kearse said police showed up to her home about 6 a.m., banging on her door. Kearse said they ordered her out of her house "because they needed to make a barricade in the back."

Miami Gardens police said there is probable cause to arrest Emmanuel Saint Fleur, 34, on a first degree murder charge. 

Police said the shooting was domestic-related. 

Officers said Saint Fleur's ex-wife lived at the home with her mother and brother. He fatally shot his former mother-in-law and wounded his former brother-in-law, investigators said. His ex-wife escaped the gunfire.

"I (have) been trying to call him since last night, just to make sure he's OK and everything is good with him," Saint Fleur's friend, Castel Jean Louis, said.

Jean Louis said he hasn't spoke to Saint Fleur in nearly two weeks.

Miami-Dade County Public School District officials said outdoor activities were limited Tuesday at North Dade Middle School because of the ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at 305-474-1560 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
