PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Pasco County deputies have arrested the man they say shot and killed a 14-year-old boy in a drive-by shooting on Valentine's Day.
On Monday, deputies announced the arrest of Steven Marin, 26, of Port Richey.
The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says at approximately 5:55 p.m. on Valentine's Day, Marin drove up and fired multiple rounds into the victim's vehicle at 6353 Ridge Crest Drive in Port Richey, striking a 14-year-old Christian Robinson in the head.
Deputies say the incident started out on US 19 after looks were exchanged when the victim’s car made a U-turn. Surveillance video then shows the victim’s car turn into a cul-de-sac after the shots, while the Marin's vehicle kept on going.
Robinson, an 8th-grader at Chasco middle school, died at the hospital a few days later.
Through witness statements, and searches of Marin's cell phone and vehicle, deputies were able to link him to the crime.
Marin has been arrested on a homicide charge and booked into the Land O' Lakes Detention Center.
