Police have identified a 22-year-old man who was shot and killed at a gas station on South Beach early Sunday morning.
Max Brody was sitting in his car next to pump number six at the Shell station at 845 5th Street when someone approached the vehicle and opened fire.
When officers arrived about 3:43 a.m., they found Brody had suffered a gunshot wound. He was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died.
According to his girlfriend, Danielle Jordan, Brody was club promoter visiting Miami Beach from Atlanta.
"He was just about to come back home. I think he stopped to fill up," she said.
Jordan told Local 10 by phone Monday that Brody was an entrepreneur. He was visiting with some friends and liked to hang out at the strip clubs.
Gas station surveillance cameras were rolling at the time of the shooting but according to the attendant, the gas pumps mostly obscured it from view.
Jordan said the young businessman was proud of his success and often the envy of others because of it.
"He don't really bump into people that dislike him or anything like that," Jordan said. "If anything, they'll dislike him or he shows out when he goes because he has money, so if anything, I think someone followed him from the strip club."
Police haven't released a description of the shooter. Brody's rental car and luggage were there when police arrived.
Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to call Miami Beach police or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
