The adult male victim was apparently seen by Guerrero attempting to shoplift five boxes of the recently-released Scarlet & Violet 151 Ultra-Premium Collection, which currently retail for $120 USD. According to the Pembroke Pines Police Department, Guerrero drew a concealed handgun from his waistband and shot the victim in the torso as he fled the store. The victim then ran to an awaiting truck driven by his girlfriend, who, after noticing he was unresponsive, called 911. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he died several hours later.
Pembroke Pines Police Major Al Xiques commented, “It should be noted that this GameStop was robbed on September 11th of this year by two other suspects unrelated to this case, which [Guerrero] was the victim of that robbery. Since that incident, [he] did go out and purchase a firearm for his own personal protection and safety, which was the firearm used in this incident.” Pembroke Pines Police reports indicate that the victim did not threaten Guerrero nor was seen with a weapon of any kind.
