December 19, 2018

OPA-LOCKA, Fla. (AP) — Police have arrested two teens who investigators believe fatally shot a 32-year-old pregnant woman and wounded her 13-year-old daughter.

The Miami Herald reports detectives arrested 19-year-old Zackrus Beckham early Wednesday on first-degree murder and attempted felony murder charges. Last week, a 15-year-old was also arrested.

Authorities say Quantia Curry Golden was sitting in a car outside a home in Opa-locka when she was shot on Nov. 26. She was three months pregnant.

Police say two gunmen opened fire on the home near Miami, then saw Golden sitting in the car outside. According to investigators, the pair then peppered the car with gunfire in an apparent attempt to eliminate witnesses.

An investigation continues. An attorney for Beckham isn’t listed on jail record

Golden’s 20-year-old brother was fatally shot seven years ago.
