Miami Homicide Lawyer

Suspect Arrested for Shooting

A 23-year-old suspect was arrested in North Miami on November 30 and charged with first-degree and attempted murder in a double shooting. According to North Miami police, he shot two juvenile males on Friday night. Police responded to a 7:36 p.m. call that evening and located the victims. One male was shot twice in the back. He was transported to Jackson Ryder Trauma Center in serious but stable condition. The second male, 16 years old, was pronounced dead at the scene.The suspect was located on Saturday afternoon and questioned. He was then transported to Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center.In Florida, as in most states, a first-degree murder charge is defined as a killing that is not only unlawful but premeditated, meaning that it was planned. For example, John finds his wife in bed with Jack. A few days later, Jack steps out of his house and is shot to death by John. Florida also follows the felony murder rule. In this case, a person is charged with first-degree murder when it happens in the commission of another violent felony, such as robbery, even if the death was accidental.An attempted murder charge means that the suspect was unsuccessful in the murder attempt. Even so, the conviction can result in substantial prison time.
