MIRAMAR, Fla. – Miramar police released new video on Thursday from a shooting back in February showing moments before a robbery turned into a deadly shooting.
According to police, officers were called to the Silver Shores gated community along the 15600 block of Silver Shores Boulevard just before 9:30 p.m. Monday, February 15, in reference to a robbery.
Police said the victim told officers that he was robbed by three people and that he shot one of them.
The suspect who was shot was later identified as a 16-year-old boy. A gun was found on the ground near his body, according to authorities.
The newly released video shows three teens stalking and watching a victim for about 30 minutes before they rob him at gunpoint.
One of the teens then points the gun to the victim’s chest, as the other two steal his cellphone and bag.
The victim told police he yelled for them to stop, but they were still pointing a gun at him.
In fear for his life, he reached for his concealed carry weapon and fired a shot that killed 16-year-old Azarya Murphy, a Miami Northwestern Senior High School football player.
We spoke to Azarya Murphy’s mother back in February and she was devastated at the tragedy of losing her son.
“You know, you raise your kids you never know what they do behind your back but at the same time, this doesn’t make any sense to me,” Rhonda Fraser said.
After learning police found a gun next to her son, she pleaded for 17-year-old Jonovan Campos and 16-year-old Anthony Person who left her son behind to turn themselves in.
A few days later, Campos and Person surrendered themselves to the police.
Campos and Person are both charged with armed robbery.
