Our thoughts and prayers go out the family and friends of long time Miami Springs resident, Miami Springs Senior High Alum, and old school mate, Amber Young.  According to a post on social media by her brother, Brian Young, Amber shot herself Monday night.

According to the post, the family made the decision to remove her from the life support systems.  She was transferred to end of life care.

We are heartbroken to hear this news today.  We can only pray right now for Amber and her family.

According to our sources, Miami-Dade Police are currently leading an investigation on Fern Way where Amber Young was living.  Miami Springs PD is serving a support role.

Don’t wait till it’s too late.


  1. May Amber Rest In Peace, I did Ambers nails for some time, & while I was a new manicurist in the hair stop, she gave me a chance, she understood why I took so long , she spoke to me, was not judge mental, always so kind to me. We understood each other in a different way. I always spoke to her about personal problems, & always listened to her as well. I loved seeing her and making her Cuban coffee in which she truly liked and wanted every time she was there. The only thing I am happy of is that she is no longer suffering. She will be always in my thoughts. Amber is a kind soul, and will always be watching over those who care for her. She was also such a strong woman. Condolences to her family. May amber Rest In Peace. All my love goes out to her.

  2. I am so sorry to hear this! I remember her from our school. My heart goes out to the family and our fellow MSSH Alum.
