Suspect charged in Florida shootings

ORLANDO, Fla. — A newly released affidavit in the case against Keith Moses, the alleged killer of three people in Pine Hills last week, offers a timeline of the Feb. 22 shootings, which happened within feet of each other over several hours.

Released Tuesday, the affidavit filed in court late Monday adds new charges against Moses, 19, accused of killing 38-yearold Nathacha Augustin, 9-year-old T’Yonna Major and Dylan Lyons, a 24-year-old reporter for Spectrum News 13. Moses is also charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and armed burglary, records show.

“Many of you in the news media and of course T’Yonna’s family wanted justice for their friends and family,” Sheriff John Mina said Tuesday. “... Our victim advocates have been working with all of the affected victims and families just to give them everything they need.”

According to the affidavit, the first 911 call came in at 11:13 a.m., after Augustin was shot in a car driven by Moses’ cousin, whose name was redacted. Court records indicate he told detectives he was driving around with Augustin, a friend, when they picked up Moses, who he said was “acting strange and was sweating.”

About 30 seconds later, Moses, who was sitting behind the victim, fired once and fled the scene on foot after the cousin stopped in front of a home, the affidavit said. At 11:29 a.m., Augustin was pronounced dead.

Investigat­ors working the scene cleared out by 3:28 p.m., records show.

By 3:49 p.m., surveillan­ce video allegedly showed Moses sneaking through the back door of a house around the corner from the scene of Augustin’s killing.

It was there he is accused of shooting T’Yonna and her mother, who survived her injuries and whose name was redacted in the affidavit.

Moments later, Lyons and News 13 cameraman Jesse Walden pulled in near the corner of Harrington and Hialeah. Moses left the house and, less than five minutes after the journalist­s arrived, they were shot at repeatedly.
