Within hours of a young man being shot dead in The Grove on Wednesday night, police arrested the men who they believe killed him.
The victim was identified as Dino Saint, 22, of Third Street.
His death pushed the murder count for 2012, to 110.
Saint was shot multiple times by two men, the occupants of a white Honda Accord, who pulled up and opened fire as he was walking on Third Street, just north of Coconut Grove Avenue with another man, around 10:30 p.m., police said.
According to police, the second victim, a 17-year-old, was shot to the leg.
He was transported to hospital, where his condition was said to have been stable.
Superintendent Stephen Dean said moments after the incident occurred, police received information that led to the arrest of a 28-year-old suspect at his home in Yellow Elder.
Dean said police retrieved ammunition and a handgun from that suspect.
Dean said police also arrested a second suspect in connection with the killing yesterday morning.
He said the 21-year-old suspect of Yellow Elder was found in possession of two firearms at his home around 7:30 a.m.
Both men are expected to be charged with Saint’s murder, police said.
