MIAMI (AP) - Investigators say a man was fatally shot after getting out of his truck to open the front gate to his home in northwest Miami-Dade County.
    
The shooting happened just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.
    
Miami-Dade police say the man was returning home from work when someone approached him and shot him multiple times.
    
Detective Roy Rutland told Miami's NBC6 (http://bit.ly/14nVkHP ) there was some kind of confrontation and the man was shot "out here in the street right in front of his home."
    
Police say family members heard the gunfire and saw a dark colored car drive away. Officers found at least seven bullet casings at the scene.
    
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity hasn't been released. No further details were immediately available.
