Troopers arrive to arrest CVS after brutal beatings on the road exterior Miami-Dade
MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Florida. – Authorities are investigating a brutal attack in southwest Miami-Dade County.
Witnesses said two men started arguing when it turned into a violent brawl.
One of the men is said to have hit the other with a shopping cart.
“All of a sudden I see a shopping cart,” a witness who refused to be identified told Local 10 News. “A blue shopping cart was lifted into the air and thrown to the ground.”
This witness said he and others yelled at the man, identified by police as 36-year-old Dexter McQueen, to stop stomping and attacking the other man, but he didn’t.
“As I got out of the vehicle, I see a black man holding a shopping trolley over the victim’s head and slamming it,” said the witness.

This witness, who goes by the Instagram name @ 305NEWSSTRINGER, is used to sharing messages on his social media page, but he never thought he would be in a situation where he would step in and prevent a crime from doing so would go on.
“I have a concealed weapon permit,” he said. “I reach into my car, grab my pistol and hold him at gunpoint.”
The tense moments that happen near the intersection of Southwest 8th Street and 122nd Avenue, right in front of a CVS.
Eventually, the Florida Highway Patrol and Miami-Dade Police came to McQueen and handcuffed him.

The stretch of road was taped around 10:30 p.m. Saturday as police officers spoke to drivers in the area and focused on the blue cart that was apparently used as a weapon in a gruesome crime.
