A young boy died Friday night after he and his father were shot during a robbery at their Miami nail salon.
Police say 10-year-old Aaron Vu was pronounced dead shortly after being shot by two men who burst into the salon, demanded money, and then opened fire again before fleeing.
Investigators say the two armed men entered Hong Kong Nails at 14832 N.W. 7th Avenue about 7:30 p.m. Witnesses told WSVN they not only demanded cash from owner Hai Vu, but also told customers to turn over their purses before shooting the Vus.
The Miami Herald reports Hai Vu’s wife and Aaron’s mother, Lynn, witnessed the shooting.
Police are searching for the getaway vehicle, a black Dodge Ram pickup, as Hai Vu is reportedly in critical condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
Aaron is at least the fifth child shot in Miami-Dade County this fall. Last Friday, a sleeping 9-year-old boy was shot in the face in Overtown. In nearby Miami Gardens, an 11-year-old girl was shot November 7 by a man who fired into her home; 8th-grader Nevilisha Francis was shot inside her house in October when bullets flew from a nearby alley; and 12-year-old Tequila Forshee was fatally struck in the head by a stray bullet while she was getting her hair braided for the first day of school in her grandmother’s living room.
