A man found in the street on Big Coppitt Key with a severe injury to his neck was airlifted to a Miami hospital for treatment of his injuries.
The victim, 39 year old Oleimys Clemente, was found in the street on Avenue D, Big Coppitt Key by his sister and a neighbor at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday. He was bleeding profusely from a neck wound, possibly caused by a broken bottle found nearby.
The victim’s sister, who lives on Avenue D, said she saw her brother arguing with two men just before finding him injured, in the street. The neighbor said he went outside his house to close his front gate and saw the victim, bleeding.
Clemente was taken to Lower Keys Hospital, then airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami for treatment of his injuries.
Sheriff’s Detective Patricia Garcia from the Major Crimes Unit responded and has been assigned to investigate the circumstances.
