Hollywood Police have arrested a teenager aned charged him with murder in the shooting death of a 25-year-old Hollywood man.

Police say 18-year-old Alexis Cabrera planned the killing of Duran Rivera, along with Stacy Goff, the dead man’s girlfriend.

Rivera’s body was found around 9:45 p.m. June 10 in an alley in Hollywood with bullet wounds to his temple, spine, arms and chest.

Goff, 18, was arrested Oct. 16 and remains in jail facing a first degree murder charge.

Hollywood Police, with help from Davie, picked up Cabrera Thursday at a Davie apartment complex.

A witness told police he saw a man in dark clothing and a woman with brownish red hair in a pony tail, dressed in a tank top running north along an alley behind Dixie Highway in Hollywood.

According to an arrest affidavit, police found a backpack at the scene with information that led them to a Hollywood address. There, they found Margo Goff, who said Rivera was her daughter Stacy’s boyfriend.

Stacy Goff was not home at the time, but called police the next day, the report said.

At first, she said she had only been with Rivera during the day, then admitted it was her running from the scene. She told police she met another man she knew as “Dread,” and when she hugged him, she heard Rivera “yelling for Dread to get his hands off his girl.”

She told police she believed they were going to fight, but then saw Dread shoot Rivera.

“Stacy stated that she was scared and took off running down the alley and then looped back to her house,” a detective wrote.

Police couldn’t find any video surveillance to prove Goff’s story.

When police asked if she knew Cabrera, she said no, then changed her story when presented with Facebook information that said she was dating Cabrera, according to the report.

Police said they found threatening messages from Goff on Rivera’s phone, including one that said there was a “green light on his head.”

After getting a warrant for Goff’s phone records, police found text messages between Goff and Cabrera that show “that she and Alex planned and lured the victim to the alley [where] he was shot and killed.”

Police worked with a confidential informant who said both Cabrera and Goff came over to his house and told him they were going to kill Rivera.

He said Goff told him later that she was the one who “initiated” the plan.

A judge issued an arrest warrant for Goff and Cabrera last month, but Cabrera was not located until Thursday.

He was being held in the main jail on no bond.

Hollywood Police Chief Frank Fernandez said the department was relentless in solving the case.

“Think about the age of the victim and the offenders,” he said. “We didn’t just lose one life, we lost three. It’s a sad story.”
