Miami, Florida – A former army ranger is shot and killed outside Miccosukee Resort and Casino

On Sunday the 25th of December, Christmas night, an argument broke out between Fernando Duarte, 33, a former U.S. army ranger and two suspects, Kenin Bailey,25, and Mikey Lenard, 25 at the Miccosukee Resort and Casino. The argument later resumed in the car park. The two suspects blocked Duarte’s car when he attempted to drive away. When they blocked Duarte’s car the second time, Duarte got out of his car and approached the suspects’ car. At that point, the suspects closed their vehicle’s doors and Lenard put the car in reverse. Bailey responded by firing 13 shots at Duarte who was hit in the leg and wrist. He was later transported to Kendall Regional Medical Center where he died during surgery. Bailey and Lenard were arrested and charged with 1st degree murder. They were taken to the Turner Guilford Knight correctional center and held without bond.

Miccosukee Resort and Gaming is located at 500 SW 177th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33194.
