The shooting happened around 8:30 p.m., police said, in the gated Grand Bay Estates neighborhood on Northwest 102nd Avenue and Northwest 86th Street in Doral.
According to Miami-Dade investigators, Hernandez arrived at the two-story home and got into an argument with a woman inside.
“The subject and her got into a verbal dispute, which escalated when the subject produced a firearm and shot the female,” said Detective Angel Rodriguez with the Miami-Dade Police Department.
Detective Rodriguez said the subject then went into the home and shot the handyman who was doing work on the house.
Police said the woman died before paramedics arrived. The male victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
As of Friday morning, Miami-Dade Police had not confirmed a connection between the shooter and the two victims. A third person was inside the home when the shooting happened but was not hurt, police said.
