Man booked into Miami-Dade jail following double shooting in Doral

A man who was arrested last Friday in Jacksonville following a double shooting in Doral was booked into Miami-Dade’s Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center Thursday night.

Miguel Hernandez, 45, of Hillsborough County, faces charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder.

According to authorities, Hernandez fatally shot a woman and a handyman at a home in Doral on Oct. 28.

The woman, identified as Maranela Noemi Rodriguez, 58, died from her injuries and the handyman, identified as Juan Alberto Pineda, was taken to Kendall Regional Medical Center in critical condition.

According to Miami-Dade police, Hernandez and Rodriguez were previously in a romantic relationship.

“The investigation revealed the male victim, a handyman, arrived at the home accompanied by the female,” Miami-Dade police said in a news release. “As the victim worked on the home, the subject arrived and asked the homeowner for the female victim by name. The female victim came to the front door and an argument ensued. During the argument, the subject produced a firearm and shot the female victim. He then made his way into the residence, shot the male victim, and fled the area. The homeowners were not injured.”

According to an arrest warrant, Hernandez shot Rodriguez in the head and Pineda in the back and the neck. Rodriguez was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said after the shooting, Hernandez fled the scene and was found the next day by police in Jacksonville.

Authorities said a witness told detectives that both Rodriguez and Pineda suspected that Hernandez was stalking them just two days prior to the shooting.
