DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (WITI) -- Two Florida men were arrested after authorities said they fatally shot a 16-year-old in the back over a marijuana sale gone bad.
Lacharles Jean, 16, sent an Instagram message to an account named “Weed Connoisseur” and later headed to the parking lot of a Deerfield Beach condominium to get the drugs, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.
Several security cameras captured the meeting between Jean and Conn Errico and Christopher Snyder, both 19. Jean punched Errico in the face and took off. Snyder got behind the wheel and Errico got in the passenger side of a Prius and they drove after Jean, shooting him in the back before speeding away, authorities said.
Errico was arrested Wednesday, April 29, and accused of pulling the trigger. Snyder was arrested on March 27. Both are charged with murder and are being held without bond.
The Sun Sentinel reports that Errico’s DNA and cellphone GPS put him at the crime scene.
