Miami-Dade, Florida – Two men started arguing when it turned into a brutal attack in Southwest Miami-Dade County.
According to witnesses, one of the men used a shopping cart to beat the other.
“All of a sudden I see a shopping cart,” a witness said. “A blue shopping cart got picked up in the air and slammed down on the floor.”
According to that witness, he and others yelled for the man, identified by police as 36-year-old Dexter McQueen, to stop stomping and attacking the other man, but he would not.
“When I stepped out of the vehicle, I see a black male holding a shopping cart over the victim’s head and he slams it down,” the witness said. “I have a concealed weapons permit,” he said. “I reach into my car and grab my pistol and held him at gunpoint.”
