FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida. (FloridaToday.news) — A recently released body camera video shows police arresting a high school football star who is accused of shooting two teenagers.
Sixteen-year-old Turrell Green was arrested on a Fort Lauderdale beach on Memorial Day.
The incident occurred during a scuffle outside a restaurant near the sand.
According to Fort Lauderdale police, Green fired his gun, injuring two people.
Green then ran towards the coastal waterway, investigators said.
“All units hold your perimeter point, hold your perimeter point,” the officer said.
Green didn’t get far and was taken into custody just a few blocks away. They put him in handcuffs and put him in the back of a cruiser.
Police said the student-athlete confessed to firing the gun.
Now a teenager with a bright football future faces two criminal offenses and several years in prison.
Just days before the shooting, Green, a quarterback at Plantation High School, tweeted the news that he had received a scholarship offer from Alabama. He also claimed to have offers from Miami and Georgia Tech.
On Thursday, Green appeared in court at a hearing in his case. His hands and feet were handcuffed when he appeared in court.
Being able to play football for a teenager now seems like an afterthought.
The two people he is accused of shooting are still recovering.
Green’s legal situation is just beginning.
