The 17-year-old son of the Canadian general consul in Miami was shot dead in a dispute with drug dealers that also saw his younger brother arrested, police said Wednesday. Jean Wabafiyebazu was killed in the fatal shoot-out Monday and his brother Marc, 15, was later arrested for involvement in what appeared to be a marijuana deal gone awry, a spokeswoman for the Miami police told AFP. A suspected drug dealer was also killed in the episode, which police believe unfolded after the brothers entered a house in a Miami residential neighborhood armed. "That's what we believe, it was a a dispute over a drug transaction," Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes told the Miami Herald.
