Hollywood Police are looking for a man who they say shot and killed another man over the summer with the help of the victim's teen girlfriend.
An arrest warrant has been issued for 18-year-old Alexis Cabrera in the June 10 shooting of 25-year-old Duran Rivera, police said Wednesday.
Stacy Goff, 18, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Rivera and is being held without bond. She appeared in court before Broward Circuit Judge John Hurley Wednesday. It wasn't known whether she has an attorney.
According to an arrest affidavit, Cabrera and Goff lured Rivera to an alley in the 2000 block of N. Dixie Highway where he was shot several times.
“Once in the right temple, he was also shot in the spinal column, one time in the chest. There was a witness who saw you and the shooter running away from the scene," Hurley said in court as he read from documentation on the case.
Police tracked down Goff, who said Rivera was her boyfriend and that they had been hanging out before the shooting but he had walked her back near her house and the last time she saw him was in the area of N. Dixie Highway and Taft Street, the affidavit said.
When police told her he had been shot to death and a witness had reported seeing someone who matched her description running from the scene, Goff at first denied she was there but then admitted she ran from the scene.
Goff told police that Rivera had seen her hugging a man named "Dread," and that Rivera and "Dread" got into an argument and "Dread" shot Rivera, the affidavit said.
Police asked Goff whether she knew Cabrera and she said she knew him but they were just friends, the affidavit said. But when police searched her Facebook page, they found Goff had posted she was in a relationship with Cabrera and posted photos of her with him.
Goff then admitted she was dating both Cabrera and Rivera, the affidavit said.
When police searched Goff's phone, they found she had sent Rivera threatening text messages that there was a "green light on his head," "blam," that she was going to "drop charges on him for rape," and get someone to "whack his ass," the affidavit said.
Goff told police she was trying to scare Rivera because he was stalking her, the affidavit said.
But text messages between Goff and Cabrera showed that the two "planned and lured the victim to the alley he was shot and killed in," the affidavit said.
An informant also told police Cabrera and Goff we at his house before the shooting and Cabrera had shown him a revolver and said he was going to shoot Rivera and another man, the affidavit said.
The informant said he overheard Goff and Cabrera talking about shooting Rivera and heard Goff tell Cabrera not to kill Rivera but shoot him in leg, the affidavit said.
Goff told later told the informant Cabrera shot Rivera once and he went down, then Cabrera emptied the gun into him as he was down, the affidavit said.
Cabrera remains at large, and is known to frequent hotels in the Hollywood area, police said. He's described a 5-foot-11, 200 pounds, with multiple tattoos on his neck and arms, police said.
Police said he is considered dangerous.
“I don't know what his mindset is right now, but what we're asking is for everybody to help us out,” Hollywood Police Lt. Osvaldo Perez said.
Anyone with information about Cabrera's whereabouts is asked to call Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
