A  Cuban immigrant killed four people and himself in Little Havana. In some but not all of the stories, it says that he "moved to South Florida from Cuba," which is a peculiar way of putting it. I would say either "escaped from Cuba" or "immigrated to Florida." All the stories are headlined "Man shoots" rather than "Cuban shoots" or "Immigrant shoots."

Man shoots four dead in Miami 2009-03-15 23:43:49

WASHINGTON, March 15 (Xinhua) — A man shot four people dead at a house in Miami, Florida shortly after midnight Sunday, then he drove home and killed himself, police said.

Miami police spokeswoman Kenia Alfonso told reporters that four people were shot and killed at about 12:15 a.m. local time (1615 GMT), while they were at a house in the Little Havana District.

Witnesses saw a red Toyota pick-up truck leaving the area just before officers arrived, she said.

The alleged killer then drove to his home, setting his vehicle and the home on fire, and then turning his gun on himself.

Detectives said the incident appeared to be a murder-suicide, and they believe it is domestic-related because one of the victims was the gunman's estranged wife.

Abel Loredo, who owns the building where the suspected gunman lived, said the man had lived there for five years and had always been on time with the rent.

He said the man had moved to South Florida from Cuba about a decade ago and worked as an electrician. [More]

By the way, the most recent shooting before that was done by a white Anglo-Saxon Protestant in Alabama, so it's not crime Americans won't do.
