Official 6/11/24 Statement from Atlantic Housing Management, LLC regarding Temple Court Apartments in Miami, Florida:

Our Lead Service Technician, Feder Biotte, who was shot on-site at Temple Court Apartments in Miami on the morning of June 10, 2024, is currently in stable condition. He is loved by his family, friends, co-workers, and Temple Court residents, and we are all rooting for his recovery.

Since the June 10, 2024 Temple Court fire, we have been working with charitable organizations and city officials to ensure we are taking care of residents. The Red Cross provided shelter for the first night. Some residents have been able to stay with family, and we are providing hotel accommodations for the rest over the next two weeks while we work with HUD and the Department of Health and Human Services to help them find alternative housing during the interim.

We have so much gratitude for the City of Miami officials and departments, all law enforcement officials, and all organizations who have helped us so far. We want to thank the Miami Fire Department for bravely battling this fire and rescuing our residents. Their dedication and sacrifice helped ensure that each one was safe. Thank you to the Miami Police Department for swiftly investigating these events and apprehending a suspect. Thank you to Mayor Suarez, HUD, and the Department of Health and Human Services for helping us to connect residents with vital resources in this time of need. And thank you to the Red Cross for providing shelter, food, water, and other essentials during the first 24 hours. The Red Cross continues to help us in providing meals and medicines during this time. We have seen such an outpouring of support and generosity from the people of Miami, and we are so grateful.
