MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – On Thursday, 22-year-old Kentrill Carraway was shot and killed by a Miami-Dade police detective in northwest Miami-Dade County.
According to Detective Marjorie Eloi, Carraway was shot around 4 p.m. at Northwest 76th Street and Northwest 20th Avenue. He told that the detectives with the department’s gang unit were investigating a narcotics case and they found a few men on the back side of a residence.
He was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
