The Office of the State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida recently announced the conviction of a defendant for a shooting at an Orlando gas station.
An Orange County jury rendered its verdict this month following a four-day trial, and Hakeem Haron was found guilty as charged for First Degree Murder with a Firearm.
Prosecutors presented compelling witness testimony and video evidence from two surveillance cameras obtained by Orange County Sheriff’s deputies. The video footage showed Haron, armed with a gun, advancing through the parking lot of a Chevron gas station towards Murphy.
Surveillance video captured 13 muzzle flashes of a gun being shot in the area where the two men met.
The video footage then recorded Haron walking away from the scene.
The severity of the charge carries a mandatory life sentence. Haron’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 30th.
