‘I actually thought I was going to die’

NORTH MIAMI, Fla. – A routine morning dry cleaning pickup went horribly wrong on Friday in North Miami.

A customer used his cell phone to call a My Cleaners representative at 13027 NW 7 Ave. who brandished a gun and threatened him from behind the counter.

My Cleaners’ customer, who asked not to be identified, said he gave the shooter’s video to police officers and reported the threat.

My Cleaners’ customer, a former corrections officer, said he entrusted the company with his guard uniform, but when he went to pick it up, it wasn’t ready.

There was a tense exchange. He said it wasn’t enough for someone to feel really threatened.

“When I kept telling him, ‘Hey, I’m a customer. Why are you talking to me like that?’ When I asked him for his name, he told me his name was The Father.”

The customer said he decided to document the assault when the My Cleaners representative suddenly decided to quickly pull out a gun.

“He put his weapon on me… At that moment I feared for my life. I really thought I was going to die.”

The My Cleaners customer said he hopes officers will find enough evidence to arrest the shooter and for prosecutors to charge him with a felony so that he never threatens to shoot anyone unnecessarily again.
