Police: Taylor shooting appears 'random'

"Miami-Dade police director Robert Parker said Wednesday there were no indications the slain 24-year-old was targeted or knew his assailant.

"There's nothing that indicates thus far that there's some kind of involvement on the victim's part," said Parker, adding it was "more like a random event."

Police have no suspects in the fatal shooting.

"We have no reason to think this was anything other than a burglary or a robbery involving an intruder," Parker said.

Police are still investigating, however, a possible link to a Nov. 17 break-in at Taylor's home, in which police said someone pried open a front window, rifled through drawers and left a kitchen knife on a bed."

Sweet mother of pearl. Week or so before someone broke in and killed him, someone else (?) had broken in and left a threatening message by way of a knife on his bed.

And the shooting appears random to them?

Sounds to me like he was warned and then killed for not heeding the warning. The Miami-Dade police just might want to check on this because its happened before. They can even look it up.
