A second man was arrested Thursday in the brutal ambush slaying of a South Miami-Dade security guard Robert Nelson.
Gregory S. Lewis, 27, was booked into jail Thursday afternoon charged with first-degree murder and armed robbery. He was also charged in a separate case on unrelated case on allegations of domestic battery.
Miami-Dade police say Lewis is one of the suspected shooters believed to have fired more than a dozen rounds at Nelson’s 50 State Security company car as the guard made his rounds in a South Miami-Dade apartment complex on Aug. 17.
Mortally wounded, Nelson, 48, lost control of the company car and it crashed into a daycare. His bloodied body was pulled out and the assailants stripped him of his firearm and property.
Miami-Dade police immediately arrested Quintin Vicks, 18, who was found running through the parking lot, carrying Nelson’s ID, credit card and stolen cash. He is the suspected get-away driver and is awaiting trial.
Homicide detectives still are looking for two more suspects.
