A disagreement about a left turn exploded into a road-rage murder Friday, involving a man from the Twin Tiers. 

Jahsie Mahoney, a 22-year-old Hialeah resident, has been charged with the second-degree murder of Caleb Smith, 24.

The arrest report says they learned that the two men were heading east on Northwest 135th Street, according to the Miami Herald. When Smith wanted to change lanes to make a proper left turn at Northwest 42nd Avenue, LeJeune Road, Mahoney blocked him with his car. Words were exchanged, leading both drivers to stop in front of 4250 NW 135th St.

According to his obituary, Smith was born in Elmira and was a former resident of Addison and Woodhull. 

Police arrived at 4250 NW 135th St. around 7:10 p.m. Friday to find Smith in the street with a bullet in his face, according to the arrest report.

Mahoney stayed at the scene and was booked into Miami-Dade County Jail little more than an hour after the shooting.
