DAVIE, Fla. - Police have arrested an 18-year-old man who was wanted in connection with the murder of 25-year-old Duran Rivera on June 10.

Alexis Cabrera was arrested Thursday without incident by Hollywood police detectives and the Davie Police Special Response Team at an apartment complex on Southwest 64th Avenue in Davie.

Police said a homicide detective tracked Cabrera to the complex.

"I commend Detective Sparkman and the Hollywood Police Homicide Unit for a job well done," said Hollywood Chief of Police Frank Fernandez. "Together with the Davie Police Department, we removed a dangerous individual from our streets. I thank the Davie Police Department's Criminal Investigations Division and SRT for assisting us in this case."

Stacy Goff, 18, who was also named a suspect in the case by police was arrested in October.

According to an arrest affidavit, Goff told police she was dating Cabrera and Rivera simultaneously. Police say text messages between Goff and Rivera show they lured him to an alley a 2112 N. Dixie Highway, where he was shot and killed.

Before the shooting, Cabrera told a police informant that he planned to kill Rivera, according to the arrest affidavit. After the shooting, Goff (picture, right with Cabrera) told the same informant that Cabrera shot Rivera several times.

Cabrera is being held at the Broward County Main Jail on a first-degree murder charge, as well as other unrelated charges.
