The How and Why? 

Authorities reported that an employee at a Chili’s restaurant in Miami Gardens was shot and killed on Monday afternoon. The incident started as a workplace altercation and escalated into gun violence.

The victim, 36-year-old Lester Reid, was shot by 31-year-old Arturo Exum inside the eatery at 19801 N.W. 2 Ave., according to the Miami Gardens Police Department. Reid, hailing from Guyana, has been residing in the United States for some time.

According to reports, the victim and another employee got into a dispute. It is said that the other employee called her boyfriend, Exum, who then entered the establishment and started shooting, resulting in Reid’s death.

A witness, Alex Escalda, recounted, “He shot him twice and left.” After exiting the establishment, she drove away in a green Mustang. However, I witnessed a green Mustang speeding off. Reid was taken to Aventura Hospital by paramedics, but he was pronounced dead there.

According to witnesses, the victim could have been a cook. A nearby worker commented, “It’s unsettling because everyone’s here working.” “This is a bustling commercial plaza,” remarked someone else.

Several witnesses informed 7News that they saw the victim covered in blood as he was placed on a stretcher and into an ambulance.

It was highly distressing. It was intense,” acknowledged Escalda. The restaurant remained closed on Monday evening. Stay connected with us for updates on this matter.
