DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA – Newly released cellphone video captured the moment a man shot and killed a Deerfield Beach teenager who was attending his grandfather’s funeral in Riviera Beach.
The video, released Wednesday, captures what appears to be a chaotic scuffle between two groups of people near the Victory City Church, just after 2:30pm, February 1.
A gunshot is clearly heard, then someone in light colored pants is seen lying on the ground. Several feet away, a man in a striped polo shirt is seen raising a gun to the air.
Police said the victim was a 15-year-old, later identified as Terrance Jackson Jr., and the gunman was 47-year-old Royce Freeman.
In all, police said, 13 shots were fired that day, at least one by Freeman, who fatally struck the teen.
Investigators said 19-year-old Derrick Peoples then shot and killed Freeman.
Adding to the chaos, the cellphone video shows a black sedan driving through the crowd, injuring several people.
