Juan Perez, the Director of Miami-Dade Police, said Monday the case has taken top priority.

“I have two daughters of my own. This case is of ultimate importance and I can’t imagine the mother and father’s grief knowing that their daughters lost their lives for nothing being caught up in a crossfire. I can’t even imagine what they are going through and the grief they share. So that’s why I am out here appealing to the community and asking for help. I wanted to spark up some interest in this and I am so grateful that you are here doing this story. Because anytime we accept the horrific gun violence this can be the result and so I am asking that people come forward.”
