North Miami Beach, FL – Police released surveillance video of a 17-year-old gunman murdering a man while trying to rob him at an ATM.
Marcine Hill, 17, faces charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery after he was indicted earlier in March.
If convicted, Hill is not eligible for the death penalty because he was a minor at the time of the crime. He could face a life sentence if convicted. Hill has remained in jail while awaiting trial, the Miami Herald reported.
Dillon Bud Calvin Steve was the victim. He was shot and killed Nov. 1, 2017 while withdrawing cash. His mother was waiting for him in the passenger seat of his car at the time.
In the video, Hill could be scene approaching from far off.
As Hill got closer, he pulled out his black pistol.
As the robber approached, the victim threw the cash on the ground.
As Hill bent over to pick it up, Steve lunged at him and was shot during the brief struggle. The video showed Steve falling to the ground as Hill ran off.
Steve, 26, was taken to the hospital where he died, according to the Miami Herald.
Hill was wearing an Ecko jacket and had the hood up but didn’t cover his face. He was easily identifiable in the video and appeared to look right at the camera.
At the time of the murder, police said they thought Hill stalked Steve and called it a crime of opportunity, according to the Miami Herald.
