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.

In 2011, I lived in Tucson, AZ, a mile down the street from the Safeway shooting site. That was and still is so difficult to deal with. Twelve days later, I was sitting in my office at the computer and a headline appeared that read that 2 officers in Miami were killed while serving a warrant. I don't know what made me click that article, but I did... and my heart sank. For more than 3 years, I worked at the University of Miami in the School of Communication's Graduate Studies Office when I was a student. Mandy and her 2 sisters used to call all the time to talk to their mom and I often answered the phone. I also grew up in Miami Springs, where Mandy's father lives. I still think about your family sometimes and hope you all are doing okay.
