FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. – Newly released surveillance footage revealed another perspective on a shooting incident at Fort Lauderdale Beach, where two teenagers were wounded, and the future of a promising high school football star was drastically altered.
The video, which was made public on Monday, captured the moments leading up to the shooting. Sixteen-year-old Tarrell Green, a standout football player at Plantation High with numerous college football offers, now faces a bleak future behind the walls of a prison cell.
His dreams of becoming a college athlete vanished after he allegedly shot and injured two people during Memorial Day Weekend.
In the footage, Green can be seen wearing a black shirt and red pants, riding a bike with a group of people. He briefly moves out of the camera’s view but returns with four other teens following closely.
In a separate video, Green’s pants and bike were spotted behind palm trees.
The shooting takes place shortly after this.
Bicycles are thrown to the ground, and people, including Green, are seen running. Several police officers promptly respond to the area where Green was initially present, rushing towards the sound of gunfire.
An ambulance arrives at the scene to transport one of the victims.
As Green tries to flee, the police quickly apprehend him.
Body camera footage depicts the moment the police capture Green on the grass, with his hands raised. They handcuff him and escort him to their police car.
Green’s legal situation worsens as time goes on. Initially facing charges as a juvenile due to his young age, the State Attorney later decides to charge him as an adult. As a result, Green remains incarcerated.
