Three arrested in fatal shooting of 11-year-old girl in Miami

MIAMI – Three people have been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of an 11-year-old girl in Miami on Tuesday.

According to the suspects' arrest reports, the shooting was reported around noon at an apartment located at 200 NW 17th St.

Miami police said the victim, identified as Taliyan Clarke, was in a bedroom with her 9-year-old brother when their father, Titato Hatzate Clarke, 40, and paternal grandmother, Charlene Ann Webster, 59, heard the sound of a gunshot.

Police said Titato Clarke rushed into the children's bedroom and found his daughter suffering from a gunshot wound to the upper left chest.

Authorities have not revealed who pulled the trigger.

Police said Clarke drove her daughter to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where she underwent surgery but was ultimately pronounced dead.

According to arrest reports, detectives executed a search warrant at the home and found a silver .40 caliber shell casing on the floor of the children's bedroom, near a dog crate.

A detective found a .40-caliber Glock pistol wrapped in a pink scarf and a brown blanket on top of the cage, the report said.

According to arrest reports, Clarke's “romantic partner,” Nancy Severe, 43, also lives in the apartment with them and they share three children who live with them.

Police said all three adults were home at the time of the shooting and shared responsibility for watching the victim.

They are both accused of aggravated involuntary manslaughter of a minor.

According to Clarke's arrest report, a criminal record check revealed he had 12 prior felony convictions.

As of Wednesday morning, all three remained in jail, with bail amounts yet to be set.
