Wife hopes husband wounded in Miami Gardens shooting comes home
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – As Miami Gardens police investigate a possible street shooting last Wednesday, the victim’s wife tells Local 10 News that she prays every day for her husband to return home.
Someone shot and killed Robert Gomes, a mechanic, while he was working on a customer’s car near Northwest 166th Street and 32nd Avenue.
Lucimara Gomes said her husband, a mechanic, was working on a customer’s car when he got into a verbal altercation while riding home with someone on a dirt bike.
“I think it was just an exchange of words and he shot,” she said.
Robert Gomes was hit by a bullet fired through the driver’s side window.
“He works very hard,” said Lucimara Gomes. “He works very hard for you, for his family.”
Robert Gomes is in stable condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Truama Center but has a long way to go, his wife says.
Lucimara says she doesn’t have her husband, whom she calls her “best friend,” home, and it hurts her to the core.
“I don’t have my person,” she said. “He knows me. He has my back.”
Robert’s whole life is his family, said Lucimara Gomes. He has two young children, Sara, 10, and Noa, 8.
She said Robert still couldn’t speak but could write.
“One of the first things he wrote was ‘How are Noa and Sara?'” Gomes said. “I said, ‘Okay, they know and we’re going to be fine.'”
Lucimara Gomes said she is in daily contact with detectives from the Miami Gardens Police Department.
Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
