Categories: Crime

Twenty-two-year-old Raymond Herisse has been identified as the man shot and killed by police during an early morning Memorial Day weekend incident in the streets of Miami Beach, according to CBS4's Jim DeFede. Herisse had a long criminal history and had been arrested numerous times before in Palm Beach and Broward counties, although none of the incidents involved violence. Twelve police officers have been put on administrative leave for discharging their weapons, and more than 100 shots were fired at Herisse. The Miami Herald confirms that no weapon was found in the car or on Herisse. Updated. 

Police say the incident started when Herisse tried to hit several police officers with his car.

"From the initial stop, there was an attempt to strike an officer with his vehicle and there was an attempt later on on Collins Avenue to strike two other officers that I'm aware off, at approximately 15th and Collins, and there was an attempt to strike two officers on bicycles somewhere down the 1300 block of Collins Avenue," Miami Beach Police Chief Carlos Noriega tells DeFede. "So to the best of my knowledge at this point, a total of five officers were almost struck by this individual."

In response, 12 different police officers fired more than 100 shots into Herisse's car. Eight Miami Beach and four Hialeah officers were involved in the incident. All have been put on administrative leave, as is normal policy.

Police are not confirming whether or not the four innocent bystanders were shot by police gunfire. 

Police have also not been able to confirm that Herisse had other passengers in the car who may have had firearms at any point during the incident. No evidence seems to suggest that those rumors are true.

Herisse has a long criminal history, and has served time in prison, though none of those arrests seem to involve violence. Herisse's previous charges have included possession of cocaine and hydrocodone, driving without a license, failure to appear in court, loitering and giving a false name to a police officer.

Update 1: Police say after a search of Herisse's car a firearm was found in a remote part of the vehicle.

Easy to believe that this guy was endangering people. When are the cops going to shoot some upstanding person?

I think if 14 cops can't subdue one man they are in the wrong biz..finding a gun in a remote area of the car totally blows especially since his history was not violent in the first place...what this is....is a bunch of cops totally full of themselves and high on power...being that 4 innocent bystanders were also shot...this thing sounds like Custers last stand....they might have stopped after the first 20 shots to see if the guy was still alive...for most people a lot less than 20 would do it....it is not unusual in this day and age for cops to trump up crap...many think they are untouchable...not all...but many do...I don't care what anyone says....this stinks to high heaven....and it looks like the cop fraternity is covering

I don't respect police nor do I respect someone who has reduced themselves to a life of crime. I'm white and have never been arrested for a crime. I believe a parking ticket is the worse thing I have ever got. I believe the problems are created by law enforcement and would rather my tax money go to help people avoid lives of crime, or how about we find a better way to deal with those that refuse to evolve?

So to the best of my knowledge at this point, a total of five officers were almost struck by this individual

those dirty white cops shot at him 100 times because he was black. this is not the first time an unarmed black man has been murdered by police in america. wake up and smell the coffee, racism is not going anywhere. the system has been set up to put black men in modern slavery

LNorwood

Why every time the police kills someone the try to justify it? And the media always bring up the fact the the victim has a criminal background. They background doesn't give the police the right to kill a person the way they killed him. His car was at a complete stop. He didn't have a weapon in he's hand at the time yes one was found in the car but not in his hand.

FUCK THE POLICE
FUCK THE POLICE

Lies. He never tried to hit them with his car and never shot anything at any officer. Two videos from two different angles don't lie! These pigs are disgusting! "cops give a damn about a negro/pull the trigger/kill a negro/he's a hero". Oh and of course he had a gun in the car AFTER they need a justifiable excuse for why they pumped 100 shots into him and the car. Video doesn't lie though and I hope all of those pigs are sent to jail because their was NO REASON for them to have shot him! Let's see them try and spin this with all the video evidence available, knowing the crooked justice system those white officers won't be convicted for killing that black man anyway. He wasn't an angel judging by his lengthy record but murdering him not right.

Since your updating the story, why dont you tell the world about the police pulling guns and cuffing innocent bystanders that were there taking video, the guy taking the video stashed the memory card from his phone in his mouth and the entire situations has now been leaked on the web,

Nature itself is completely racist from top to bottom. Absolutely everything about animal life on Earth is "racist".

Geez.  What are the chances that the police were shooting a criminal?????  30,000 folks on the street that night, and the cops happened on an innocent man??????? who happened to be driving like he was on drugs.  Wake up.  I am sorry he is dead, but you know, you play with guns, and somebody has got to die.  Usually, the slowest on the draw, gets the bullet first.

OVERKILL & POLICE IRRESPONSIBILITY !

This Conservative Republican, pro LAW pro POLICE is OUTRAGED by the irresponsibleactions of the 12 Police Officers that joined in a Police ONLY shooting melee on South Beach !

FOUR Citizens were wounded by POLICE IRRESPONSIBILITY !  One only can guess at the number of other innocent bystanders that were put at risk by these "POLICE OFFICERS"  fortunately none of the wounded bystanders were killed by the POLICE fire ...

THIS IS AN OUTRAGE !    and there must be serious consequences for those involved

The Suspect did not fire on the POLICE, no POLICE OFFICERS reported injuries, yet we are to believe that stopping this "dangerous driver"  that had supposedly tried to hit the Police with his car on a packed SOBE road  ... REQUIRED DEADLY FORCE to be use by 12 POLICE OFFICERS firing over 100 rounds at an unarmed Suspect on streets crowed with citizens celebrating the Holiday...

The fact that FOUR Citizen Bystanders were shot by the POLICE is the indicator that thePOLICE ACTIONS were IRRESPONSIBLE !!

There is NO EXCUSE for the wounding of Citizens as ONLY the POLICE were SHOOTING their firearms ... The Suspect was, and remained unarmed until his death in a hail of bullets

THIS ACTION SHOULD NOT BE WHITEWASHED !

Let's look at some stats in Atlanta Georgia and compare them to Portland Oregon.

According to city-data.com Atlanta's population is 540,921. Atlanta had 110 murders in 2006.

http://atlanta.areaconnect.com...----

Now let's check out Portland, OR with a population of 566,141. Portland had 20 murders in 2006.Portland crime stats for 2006:http://www.areaconnect.com/cri...---Portland = 76% white, only about 7% blackAtlanta = 31% white, 61% black.------How about New York City?

http://projects.nytimes.com/cr...

New York Times - New York City Interactive Homicide Map:

Blacks = 60% of the killers, 60% of the victims

Whites = 7% of the killers, 8% of the victims

Blacks = 26% of NYC populationWhites = 35% of NYC population------

What about the white liberal "progressive" paradise of Seattle (only 8% black in total)?

Logically, black males make up only 3% of Seattle. Guess what! Over half of all murders in Seattle are committed black males (14 of the 28 in 2008, 12 of the 21 in 2009, & 7 of the 17 in 2010--most of the other homicides in Seattle that were committed by non-blacks in those years were committed by latinos and asians). See the Seattle Post-Intelligencer's annual year-end homicide tally articles for in-depth articles about every homicide in super-liberal whitey-white Seattle and "MLK County" (LOL).

Perhaps you should check out the Los Angeles Homicide Blog once in a while, it is quite an eye-opener, they report the race of victims and also the killers whenever possible!http://projects.latimes.com/ho...

What does the US Government say?

According to the US Department of Justice and the FBI, approximately 5,000 to 8,000 black people are murdered in the USA every year, and at least 94% of their murderers are also black.

http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius20...

Murders in the USA in 2009

White murderers = 5,286 (33.5% of the murderers in the USA in 2009)

Black murderers = 5,890 (37.4% of the murderers in the USA in 2009)

Now I know most of you naive liberals probably think the USA is something like 50% white and 50% black, because that is what you see portrayed on tv shows and advertisements, but the reality is that the USA is about 75% white and only about 13% black.

This means that blacks commit murder at a rate of about 5 to 7 times the rate that whites commit murder, depending on the year.

What it also means is that "racists" like me have absolutely no need to "oppress" blacks or to "keep blacks down".  THEY DO AN AWESOME JOB OF THAT ALL BY THEMSELVES!

Be aware that the FBI and USDOJ count non-white Mestizos (the ethnic term for most of the "Mexicans" or "Latinos" or "Hispanics" in the USA) as being WHITE in the "Offender" category (but not in the "Victim" category for some reason), which unfairly raises the reported "white crime rate" much higher than it actually is.Almost every Police Department in the USA also do the same thing.Just about every state and local agency does this. Here are some examples from Washington state. Do this guy "GERONIMO RIOS  RAMIREZ" listed with the Yakima County Sherrif's Office Sex Offender page look white to you???http://tinyurl.com/2e8q5nbNope, he is not white, you liberals would call him a "person of color"!Search for yourself:http://www.icrimewatch.net/ind...The Washington State Patrol does the exact same thing. Go to their "Most Wanted" page and check out all the amazing diversity there! Then click on one of the brown, non-white latino mexican whatevers. THEY ARE CLASSIFIED AS BEING "WHITE"!http://www.wsp.wa.gov/crime/wa...How about Texas, where all the rednecks live?Go look at the Texas Sex Offender Registry:https://records.txdps.state.tx...Search by any zip code (75214 or 75247 is a good start) you choose and choose a sex offender with an obviously Spanish name and look at his photo and compare it with his racial classification. Notice anything funny??? The sex offender is classified as "white" even though he is a brown, non-white, "latino/hispanic/chicano/mestizo/choose your favorite politically-correct term" "person of color", and OBVIOUSLY NOT a white guy.Well over half of all the so-called "white" sex offenders listed there ARE NOT ACTUALLY WHITE AT ALL but are the kind of people that white liberals love to call "people of color".This unfair and inaccurate classification of non-whites as being "white" wrongly inflates the "white crime rate", especially "white sex offender rate" FAR HIGHER than it actually is in reality.

Miami is a city full of wetbacks, niggers, and queers. I hope the police eliminate them from society. It is also amazing that niggers were at one time slaves in this country, especially when I see how there work ethic is today.

All he had to do to avoid this is wait until the sun came up, he could have drove in and spent the day in South Beach like so many others. Some people don't exercise good judgment 4 AM the best part of that hour is sleeping and re-energizing for a full day of fun activities. From the video, there seems to have been a lot of folks wandering around on foot. Some people have to cruise in the car.

I really think Boynton Beach PD really should have apprehended him in Nov 2010 though, they had someone pick him out of a lineup, so it's not like they didn't know who he was and his whereabouts ?

Im seeing all this from Houston Tx and I smell Sh***, Okay the guy was driving wreckless, but he came to a complete STOP... To pump a 100 bullets into his car was Overkill and Unjustified, now Im reading that after 3 days a gun was finally found, can you look at the video and tell me how much time the guy had to hide his gun that good. And I think putting him in another robbery of a store was a Cover up for their screw up on what they did to this kid. Im not taking sides but show me his prints on that gun inwhich was said he  fired that night, I think that Gun was recovered long ago in 2010 robbery and they pulled it out to cover their F***up.. Cops in Houston carry throw away guns and dope all the time.. This is a Crooked World we live in peace....

@LNorwood Allegedly. Allegedly a gun was found in a remote part of the car. So, even if true, it has nothing what so ever to do with what happened, as it was not a factor.
