A GoFundMe  page has been setup for information leading to the arrest of 29-year-old Kamil Patel's killer. 

According to the ABC Affiliate in Miami, Patel was shot and killed outside a Miami Beach karaoke bar on Thursday.

Patel was a 2006 Williamsville East High School graduate. He had recently moved to Florida from Texas. 

Patel and his girlfriend were reportedly walking in an alley behind the bar when a gunman opened fire. The woman was not hurt. 

Patel was taken to the hospital where he later died. 

Miami Beach Police say the gunman left the scene in a white car with a temporary tag, possibly read CC34319.
