Hialeah Shooting Suspects from Palmetto Bay, Pembroke Pines Charged with Attempted MurderSource: MDCR

A couple has been charged with attempted murder following a shooting incident in Hialeah that left a 31-year-old man wounded. Thais Lemos Buscariollo and Manuel Alejandro Vazquez stand accused of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and armed burglary, as confirmed by Hialeah Police.

Both suspects, Buscariollo, a 30-year-old resident of Palmetto Bay, and Vazquez, 35, from Pembroke Pines, reportedly sought out missing property that belonged to Buscariollo at the victim's residence on the 3300 block of West 14th Avenue. Upon the homeowner's appearance, Vazquez discharged the weapon, hitting the victim's arm, police detailed; the pair then fled the scene before law enforcement could arrive.

The injured man was quickly transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center, where he had to undergo surgery. According to a report by Local 10 News, he later was able to identify Buscariollo and Vazquez as the assailants, leading to their arrest by detectives.

Following their capture just before the stroke of midnight Thursday, jail records show that the suspects were processed at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. "I feel good!": Sylvia Gumberg turns 112 in Aventura, while a Miami-Dade judge determined that there was probable cause to charge Buscariollo and Vazquez. Presently, they are being held without bond, as of last Monday afternoon.

The shooting has been the subject of local discussion, even finding its way onto social media with the Hialeah Social account on Instagram, phrasing the incident as a union of criminal efforts with a stark geographic contrast: "She’s from Palmetto Bay, he’s from Miramar, together they attempted murder in Hialeah." Both perpetrators await further legal proceedings as the case continues to develop.
