MIAMI, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- Police are searching for suspects in South Florida whom they say shot and killed a man after he warned them against reckless driving around children.

Investigators and several witnesses say Bradley Holt, 24, spotted a yellow Ford Mustang doing donuts and driving erratically outside of his apartment in Miami Thursday night.

One 12-year-old witness, Jarrod Smith, told WSVN that Holt had been playing football with him and some other children before he confronted the occupants of the vehicle, telling them to slow down.

Neighbors said they heard two gunshots, one of which struck Holt in the head. He died after being transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where his family had gathered for prayer.

Investigators currently lack information about the number of occupants in the Mustang, which was described as a 1988 or 1998 model convertible. No others were injured in the shooting.
