Detectives Amanda Haworth and Roger Castillo were shot and killed while serving a felony warrant on a man wanted for murder.

The detectives, along with two other members of a regional task force, had gone to a home near the intersection of NW Seventh Avenue and 69th Street. Upon making contact with an occupant of the home, someone inside immediately opened fire, striking Detective Castillo and Detective Haworth. Another detective on the scene returned fire and killed the suspect.

Detective Castillo succumbed to his wounds at the scene. Detective Haworth was transported to a local hospital where she passed away during surgery.

Detective Haworth had served with the Miami-Dade Police Department for 23 years. She is survived by her son, parents, step-parents, and three sisters.

i still remember that day when i recieved two phone calls, one from my mom to tell me an officer had been shot. i immediately went on the web and found out it was you. i then got a call from jeff lampert and he filled me in more, as we both shed several tears. i immediately remember us in the academy..ble 123...were were defensive tactics partners and i had several bruises from being toss across the mats by you. i had the pleasure of working with you in central and hammocks. i come to this page quite often and when i look at your picture i instantly hear your familiar giggle. rest in peace and i'll see you again someday. you are missed by all who knew you. it took me this long to say goodbye to one of the best cops that ever put on a badge.
