MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL – The Miami-Dade Police Department, Homicide Bureau has arrested a man responsible for the death of a 50-year-old male. According to investigators, uniformed officers responded to a residence in the area of 30 Avenue NW 64 Street to reports of an unresponsive male. Upon arrival, they discovered the victim, later identified as Maurice Wright, lying in bed suffering from a gunshot wound.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded and determined Wright deceased on scene. Detectives were able to identify the subject who is the victim’s son and learned an assault rifle had been used. Through investigative leads and with the assistance of the MDPD Special Response Team, they were able to serve an arrest warrant at a motel located in the 6100 block of Biscayne Blvd.

A Special Response Team’s tactical breach was able to place 27 year-old Maurice Wright Jr., in custody without further incident. He was charged with second degree murder with a weapon.

According to NBC News Miami, the father and son had a “turbulent” relationship with Wright Jr. pistol-whipping his father just months prior as well as having made threats to “kill the family” including his girlfriend, a threat which recently landed him in jail. He was released on May 20.

According to that same report, which included statements from a warrant obtained by Miami Police as well as his grandmother, Wright Jr. “was known to carry firearms and would shoot the firearms indiscriminately inside and outside of the residence.”

As a national debate rages over gun laws, despite Florida’s “red-flag” law, which allows authorities to take guns from people found to pose a “significant danger” to themselves or others, Maurice Wright Jr., apparently remained in possession of his firearms.
