A 22-year-old Florida man was arrested after he was allegedly caught on camera executing a man as he loaded his car in the parking lot of a restaurant dealership.
Jancarlos Jose Lizardi Rosado was taken into custody Thursday and charged with one count of dangerous and depraved first degree murder, records reviewed by Law&Crime show.
According to a news release from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a reported shooting at a Restaurant Depot Thursday in Fort Meyers, about 150 miles northwest of Miami.
When first responders pulled up to the store, deputies said they could still hear shots being fired. Shortly after arriving, authorities say they found a man lying on the ground next to his vehicle. He appeared to have suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died.
The suspected shooter — later identified as Rosado — was standing nearby, officials said. Deputies arrested him and secured the scene before taking him to the Lee County Jail, where he was charged with second-degree murder.
“Detectives spoke with multiple witnesses and determined the shooting was unrelated to the business,” the release said.
The sheriff’s office released security camera footage Friday morning that allegedly shows Rosado shooting the victim multiple times, but removed the video before Law&Crime could see it.
According to a report by the Fort Meyers News-Press, the footage shows the victim — a stocky bald man wearing a black t-shirt — leaving the store and loading the trunk of his vehicle with items from a shopping cart.
Moments later, the victim falls to the ground as the video indicates he had just been shot. He then crouches down while clutching his chest and hides behind his car. He then begins to move counter-clockwise around the vehicle in an apparent attempt to escape the shooter.
A man who appears to be Rosado can reportedly be seen in the frame holding a gun and following the victim before pulling the trigger several times. The victim then falls out of the frame and the man, who appears to be Rosado, stands “calmly” next to the vehicle, the News-Press reported.
Authorities have not officially released information about the victim, but deputies reportedly told Fort Meyer’s NBC affiliate WBBH-TV that the victim and the shooter were related and referred to the killing as a “domestic dispute” of some kind.
“He unloaded the whole clip and then put another clip in and kept shooting,” a Restaurant Depot employee reportedly told WBBH.
Another witness reportedly told the station that there were about 50 patrons inside the store at the time of the shooting, and many were “crawling onto pallets” to avoid possibly being hit by a stray bullet.
“I am disgusted by this senseless murder,” Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno said in a statement.
The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a message from Law&Crime requesting additional details about the shooting and the alleged shooter’s alleged relationship with the victim.
