$5,000 Reward Offered for Information on Miami Businessman’s Murder

MIAMI — Friends are speaking out after a tragic incident in which a beloved businessman and father of six children was fatally shot inside his store, according to Miami Police.

One close friend, Crystal, expressed her disbelief over the unfortunate fate of Nader Aweidah, 46 years old. “He was an amazing man,” she said. “Always looking out for the community, doing everything he could. A truly exceptional business owner. It’s heartbreaking.”

“This is incredibly sad. We need to put an end to this violence. He cherished his children. I can’t comprehend what happened. He didn’t deserve this. Whatever the issue was, it could have been resolved through conversation,” Crystal added.

Miami Police spokeswoman Kiara Delva reported that the incident occurred shortly before 11 a.m. Aweidah was found inside his business, the Perfect Paint and Body Shop, located at 7455 NW 7th Ave, just west of I-95.

Friends mentioned that he had owned the shop for two decades. Aweidah, also known as “Bubba,” was the proprietor of Bubba’s Supermarket adjacent to the paint and body shop.

Delva stated that Miami Fire Rescue arrived at the scene, but unfortunately, Aweidah was pronounced dead on site.

“Our homicide detectives are actively investigating the area and speaking to witnesses who may have witnessed the incident. We are also reviewing surveillance footage,” Delva explained.

“Based on what we know, he was highly regarded within the community. We urge anyone with information to come forward and assist us. This was yet another tragic shooting,” Delva continued.

She also mentioned that the police currently have no motive or description of the shooter to release. Individuals with information that may be helpful are encouraged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS (8477). A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered.
