    A man was caught on camera murdering another man after the two spent time at a South Florida casino, police said.

    Luciano Thompson, 22, was arrested Thursday on a second-degree murder charge in the killing of 24-year-old Eduardo Gonzalez, according to a Miami-Dade Police arrest report.

    The report said Thompson and Gonzalez had gone together to the Hialeah Park Casino early Wednesday morning and were seen in video footage leaving around 1:44 a.m.

    Minutes later, surveillance footage near the 10200 block of Northwest 26th Avenue showed Thompson shoot Gonzalez in the head, the report said. Gonzalez later died from his injuries.

    The report said a gun that was later found at Thompson's home matched the bullet casing found at the scene of the murder.

    Thompson was being held without bond Thursday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
