LAUDERHILL, Fla. – Lauderhill police arrested a Farm Store store clerk Monday accused of fatally shooting a man after an argument.

Sameer Rashid, 33, faces a charge of premeditated murder.

Lt. Michael Santiago, a spokesman for the Lauderhill Police Department, said Rashid shot Stevens Jeangilles, 32, multiple times just after 8:30 a.m. in the 4200 block of Northwest 12th Street.

Jeangilles was taken to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, where he later died of his injuries.

Surveillance video showed that Rashid followed in an SUV, police said. On the video, Rashid gets out of the SVU and draws a weapon, causing Jeangilles to raise his hands in the air and drop his phone, police said.
