Pair of 14-year-olds charged with murder in Fort Lauderdale


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Fort Lauderdale police say they have arrested two 14-year-old boys in connection with last week’s shooting of a 52-year-old man.

Police said in a statement Tuesday night that each teen was charged with first-degree murder.

Police say a surveillance video showing two young men entering the suspect’s car and then dashing away led police to the suspects. The Sun-Sentinel reports they are being held at the Broward Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

The Associated Press typically does not name juveniles accused of crimes.

The victim was Gary H. Martin, 52, of Fort Lauderdale. Police say he was shot multiple times inside his car on April 19.
