Weird Silence on February Shooting in Coral Gables?

I live in a very very quiet neighborhood near the University of Miami. Shootings are, to the say the least, rather rare: this incident on Feb 12 only a few blocks from my house is the only one I can think of around here in almost three decades.

It got a lot of news coverage the day it happened.  The story was that federal agents shot and killed a person who brandished a weapon; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was involved in what was described as “part of a large scale financial investigation.”

A large-scale financial investigation?  Homeland Security/ICE involved?  Someone in quiet Coral Gables being shot for (allegedly) ‘brandishing’ a weapon? It all sounded like there would be lots more to report.  But then … at last as far as I know .. nothing?  Did I miss the follow-up story on what happened (always possible, but nothing seems to turn up on search engines either)? If not, why the silence for more than a month?
