10-Year Old Gunned Down in Nail Salon Robbery

Predicting that they’ll kill again, Miami-Dade police on Saturday blanketed the neighborhood with photos of two gunmen who fatally shot a 10-year-old boy as his mother and father watched during the brazen robbery of their nail salon on a busy thoroughfare .

… Though it didn’t capture the shooting itself, a video security system recorded the two men bursting into Hong Kong Nails salon at 14832 NW Seventh Ave. Friday night, pistols already drawn.

Moments later, young Aaron Vu was dead and his father, 42-year-old Hai Nam Vu, was critically wounded. Hai Nam Vu and his wife Lynn own the salon, and workers at neighboring stores say the boy often hung out there with his parents.

…Images from the video clearly show the face of one gunman, a young man wearing a black shirt, blue jeans and a red headband. The other has what police said is a red shirt draped around his head like a ski mask.

The video shows the two men striding aggressively into the shop, guns drawn. They disappear from the frame, then reappear as they leave the shop — one of them now carrying what appears to be a woman’s purse.
