Rapper dies in front of children in Miami-Dade street shooting

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – A rapper who was with two children died Friday after a shooting east of the Country Walk neighborhood of Miami-Dade County.

Quality Control, a record label, identified the rapper as 28-year-old Shandler Beaubien, better known as Wavy Navy Pooh. He was driving a 4-door Toyota Camry when he died at the intersection of Southwest 152nd Street and Southwest 127th Avenue.

“In the front seat was a one-year-old child in a car seat who could easily have been shot and killed,” said Detective Alvaro Zabaleta, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department.

Also in the back seat was a 5-year-old child with an adult. They weren’t hurt either. Zabaleta said one of the children was celebrating a birthday.

Zabaleta said the gunman was in a four-door gray Lexus traveling west on Southwest 152nd Street, police said.

Local 10 News has learned that more than 80 shell casings were found at the scene and that at least one of the guns used was semi-automatic.


The fatal shooting led to the closure of Zoo Miami’s coronavirus testing site for the rest of the night.
