He was about eight miles from his home in the Silver Lakes neighborhood.
Property records show Cutshaw was single when he bought his small stucco home with a barrel-tile roof in January 2003.
Neighbors said he lived alone in Pembroke Pines and was a great guy who would help out when it was needed. They added that he was 70-years-old and about to retire.
According to CBS, Cutshaw died while he sat in his car as it idled at an intersection only a few miles from his home.
Live video of the pursuit and citizen cell phone videos captured the massive number of rounds fired. “In one bystander video…the sedan appeared to have just turned right at the intersection, about 350 feet away from the UPS truck,” Miami Herald reported.
George Piro, special agent in charge of the Miami field office for the FBI, said in a December 5, 2019 press conference that the crime spree began at the Regent Jewelry Store in Coral Gables, Florida around 4:15 p.m.
