MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities are trying to determine whether the fatal shooting of an intruder attempting to steal a wave runner outside a Miami waterfront home was justified.
Miami-Dade police say an unidentified juvenile armed with a shotgun shot 20-year-old Reynaldo Munoz in the head Saturday afternoon outside his family's home.
A police affidavit says Munoz parked outside a marina, put his own watercraft in the water and navigated it to the home.
Police say Munoz was confronted by the teen as he attempted to
take the family's wave runner.
His 19-year-old girlfriend Carolina Lopez told police she was waiting for Munoz to return with the watercraft, which they planned to sell for $2,000. She is charged with felony murder for her participation in a crime that caused the death of another.
