A 26-year-old man has been charged in connection with a fatal shooting following a party at an Airbnb property in Miramar early Saturday morning, police said.

At around 2 a.m. Saturday, the Miramar Police Department responded to the 8600 block of Wilshire Drive after receiving a call about gunshots, police said.

While officers were on their way they were diverted to a car accident where witnesses said the driver, who had attended the party at the Airbnb, was shot and crashed into a car at 8688 Miramar Parkway.

Suarez faces a first-degree murder charge in connection with Saturday’s shooting, according to his arrest affidavit.

The affidavit says Suarez was hosting the party and got angry with a friend of the victim before asking him to leave the party.

The argument escalated while they were outside the house and Suarez threw an object at the victim’s white Infiniti.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim was driving north on Canal Drive, but was forced to turn around because the street was a dead end.

Suarez then retrieved a gun from a car parked outside the house and fired at the Infiniti, hitting the driver in the back of the head, police said.

Five other passengers were in the vehicle but were not injured.

When Suarez returned home, a woman noticed he had a mark on his right arm and he said it was because he had been hit with a rock, according to the affidavit.

Speaking to witnesses, officers learned that Suarez was angry because the victim kept revving his car’s engine.

Another witness said no aggression on the part of the victim was shown before he was killed, according to the affidavit.
