Shooting investigation underway in Kendall area, authorities say

A shooting investigation is underway Tuesday afternoon in Kendall, authorities said.

The incident was reported at 9955 S.W. 87th Court.

Sky 10 was above the scene just after 3:45 p.m. as a man was being taken into custody. 

A man who is in his 60s, appeared to struggle with officers as they attempted to place him into the back of a police cruiser. He eventually sat on the ground and was later taken away on a stretcher. 

His name has not been released. 

Police said the man and the victim, who has been identified as Magdiel Hernandez, 38, got into an argument prior to the shooting.

Hernandez, who is an employee of AAA,  had responded to the residence for a service call at the time of the incident. 

It's unclear what sparked the argument. 


A man who showed up at the scene told reporters that he believes that Hernandez is his nephew. 

"We were told by a co-worker that his manager is here," Roberto Flavio said. "So he was dispatched to probably service a battery, give him a jump start or maybe change a battery, and it's unbelievable -- he's a very good guy, good serviceman, good individual. He has been doing this for years and I can't believe it. I'm in shock."

Victor Cazanas said he is a friend of Hernandez's. 

"This guy didn't start problems," he said. "He goes to church every Sunday. It is incredible. Unreal it happened." 

A second man who was injured in this incident was taken to Baptist Health for medical care, police said.
