Arrest Warrant Issued For Gunman In West Park Shooting

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – An arrest warrant has been issued for a Hialeah man who reportedly gunned down a Miami man in cold blood days before Christmas.

On December 22nd, Raimundo Modia drove his high-end luxury Mercedes to a West Park warehouse on SW 57th Terrace in hopes of selling it. What Modia, 34, didn't know was that the prospective buyer, 35-year old Nalio Williams, was a career criminal, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

During the meeting between the two men, Modia was shot several times during the meeting and died at the warehouse. He is survived by a five-year old son.

Williams left a stolen white Toyota Tundra at the shooting scene. The tag on that vehicle was registered to a man in northern Florida whose identity had been stolen, and the vehicle itself was registered to another man in Winter Garden. Modia's Mercedes was discovered the following day abandoned in Miami Gardens.

A first degree murder warrant has been issued for Williams who detectives believe may still be in the area.

The sheriff's office said Williams past arrests have been for identity theft and fraud so he may be using an alias.

Anyone with information about Williams or the shooting can contact BSO Detective Shane Schroeder at (954) 321-4210 or Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477).
