THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Miami Police say Dewayne “Deja” Jones was shot to death Sunday morning. Neighbors heard gunshots and shouting — including someone yelling “give me your purse!” Jones was killed 7 blocks from where Jones lived, reportedly hanging out with a friend.

The police released a recent picture of Jones, asking for the public’s help, citing a lack of leads. They are also trying to determine if it was a hate crime. The police also say the shooter probably did not want Jones to survive.

It was reported that Jones previously served time in prison and was recently cited for carrying a concealed weapon. Jones had also recently moved into the area.

The police also noted that another trans person was assulted, but survived. It is not clear if this is related to the same shooting.

This is pretty much all the info on the shooting at this time.
