Duran and Soler were murdered last week.
Last week, 23-year-old Julian Soler and his girlfriend, 24-year-old Kennia Duran, were shot and killed outside a Mobile gas station near Miami Gardens after an attempted car-jacking involving a group of three men. Now police have made an arrest in the case, and they believe one of the perpetrators is just 16 years old.

Police believe 16-year-old Eric Ellington is the young man shown in security footage driving a Nissan Pathfinder up to Soler's Mustang. Ellington is then believed to have pulled Soler out of the car and shot him. Duran was killed by a passenger in the Pathfinder.

Miami Gardens Police expect two more arrests to be made in the case.

Ellington, meanwhile, appears to be the then-unnamed person arrested last night in Hollywood, as reported by WSVN.

"I never caught him with a gun, I never saw him with a gun," Erica Love, who identified herself as the suspect's mother, told the station. "Sometimes, you don't know, but I don't want to sound stupid, but I didn't know... I don't know. I'm sorry."

Prosecutors plan to charge Ellington as an adult.

I knew Julian,  he was one of my daughters best friend a gentle soul already ready to help everybody.  This animal shot him in cold blood for no reason emptied his gun on him because as he said when he was arrested he did not look scared enough. He destroyed two families including leaving a little boy without his mother.  And this person Bigt123 says there no need to bash him, what part of "HE EMPTIED HIS GUN ON HIM JUST BECAUSE HE DID NOT LOOK SCARED ENOUGH" don't you understand.  Are you a person with no soul.

I read that he shot them because the car was a stick shift and he didn't know how to drive one. Sad, sad, sad.

Quality parenting.  Increase free birth control and Big Brother programs....

@jezzyboi  I guess if wanting justice for your "Dawg" brutally killing an innocent person is considered being a "Hatas", well then sign me up! This waste of a human being Eric will be gone for a very long time. I am very happy about that. Seeing as how ignorant you sound jezzyboi I will say that perhaps you may see him again real soon. Perhaps you could share a cell and swap stories of how moronic you guys are. I wouldn't normally jump to conclusions on an individual I have never met, but it seems pretty accurate in my opinion based on your statement. So I accurately claim you to be... an idiot.

He should be executed.  I hope they drag him behind a car until he falls apart, weeping and suffering like the worthless piece of trash he is.

It is a sad thing that these two people were killed. Lets not jump the gun here and accuse what you don't know and blaming the mother is a low blow. I tell ya some people need to grow up. Its clear if this child did this he needs help.
