MIAMI (Tribune News Service) — Ezell Finklea didn’t have to help.

When the military veteran witnessed a slaying in Miami, Finklea cooperated with law enforcement, identifying his neighbor as the killer. Even when the suspected killer was believed to have broken into his home and attacked him, Finklea refused to back down, testifying at hearings or depositions at least seven times over the years.

But on the eve of the trial, Finklea was returning from buying a chicken dinner Saturday night when an unknown gunman walked up to his car on Northwest 30th Avenue, firing more than a dozen shots. https://www.stripes.com/news/veterans/he-was-very-brave-on-eve-of-trial-former-green-beret-who-witnessed-a-miami-slaying-is-shot-dead-1.564500
