HIALEAH, FLORIDA: An Instagram model went in for a different kind of perfect shot in Florida allegedly shooting at her ex-boyfriend 15 times and killing him after an argument. Hialeah Police arrested 23-year-old social media model Karina Corbalan after she shot Alejandro Sanchez, 28, at 5600 block of West 21st Avenue on March 2, Monday. According to her arrest report, officers arrived at the scene to find Corbalan kneeling over the victim's body.

Sanchez's mother, Aymee, attended the bond hearing at the Miami-Dade County court and was beside herself with grief as she addressed the judge, WSVN reported. “She took my son’s life,” she said in court on March 3. “She shot my son in cold blood. She deserves to pay for that. She took his life. I want to be involved in everything because I want to see her pay for what she did to my family,” she said.

Judge Mindy S Glazer who heard the session said that Corbalan was charged with second-degree murder. According to the news outlet, the woman shot at the car multiple times before shooting him. Police have not disclosed a possible motive, but neighbors confirmed that Corbalan and Sanchez were no longer together at the time of the shooting. 

“She shoots the car. We only heard the ‘Poom, poom, poom.’ We went out, and he fell there running," said Xiomara Antunez, a neighbor who saw the incident unfold with her daughter on their Ring camera. The neighbor added that there may have been an argument because she heard some loud yelling before the gun went off. She also added that Sanchez's mother had also come to the scene and that it had triggered a whole new argument.

The victim passed away at the Jackson Memorial Hospital. “There’s probable cause for the charge of second-degree murder, no bond,” Glazer said. 

According to a report in Local 10, court records show that Corbalan has had a past criminal record. She was arrested last year for battery on a law enforcement officer and for resisting an officer with violence. The case was closed after she completed a pre-trial diversion program.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for Alejandro's family to raise money for lawyer and court expenses. "Alex was an amazing son, uncle, and brother who didn’t deserve any of this. Alex was funny, charming, goofy and loved playing with his nieces and just being at home," said the page.
