After an intense joint investigation by the Miami-Dade State Attorney`s Office, the Coral Gables Police Department and the Miami Police Department, the suspect in the Halloween armed carjacking and shooting of a teenage couple, previously identified as Luis Alberto Basalo, has been taken into police custody. The carjacking and shooting took place in the 400 block of Rosario Avenue in Coral Gables, Florida.
I am overjoyed that the intense collaboration between one of my senior violent crimes prosecutors, the Coral Gables Police Department and the Miami Police Department has led to this individual being taken into custody. It is only a matter of luck that these two young victims were not fatally assaulted. The process of developing the proper and appropriate criminal charges is now underway, commented State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle.
