North Miami police on Monday released surveillance video of a robbery allegedly committed by the same man charged with the murder of 10-year-old Aaron Vu and a mysterious accomplice.
The robbery happened at the Royal Castle restaurant at 12490 NE Seventh Ave. Police say Anthawn Ragan Jr. appears in the surveillance video from the robbery at the restaurant.
Ragan is also the gunman seen in surveillance video from the nail salon shooting that killed Aaron Vu, Miami-Dade police said. His face is not covered in either video, but in each video there is another person with him whose face is covered.
What police dont know is the identity of Ragans accomplice, or whether it might be the same person.
In the restaurant robbery, the second robber wore a mask. In the nail salon shooting, the second gunman wore a red shirt over his face.
While investigators continue to search for that second gunman, family and friends gathered to say goodbye to the little boy.
A funeral mass for the fifth-grader was held Monday at St. Marks Roman Catholic Church in Southwest Ranches.
Vus casket was surrounded by those who loved him as they gathered, filled with inconsolable pain.
Its a difficult process and its gonna be a lot of time to heal, said Rom Solomon, a neighbor.
Solomon added, He was energetic, hes the life if the party in the neighborhood where we live so its a sad thing.
Vu was killed last month when two men fired shots during a robbery inside his parents nail salon in Northwest Miami-Dade. His father Hai Nam Vu was also shot and is still recovering.
Ragan faces several charges including first degree murder with a firearm and armed robbery with a firearm.
