OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - WFTV reporter Deneige Broom read through documents that show the evidence investigators have against a group accused in two killings and a string of random shootings across Osceola County.

Investigators said 15-year-old Konrad Shafer, 17-year-old Victoria Rios, David Damus and Juan Muriel admitted to being inside a home where one of the killings happened. Officers said the group also admitted to what they did inside the home.

The interviews detail which teen investigators said pulled the trigger, who stabbed Eric Roopnarine, 22, and why they thought they were about to get away with thousands of dollars.

The documents show Roopnarine received $10,000 from a car insurance claim before he was killed. Investigators said Shafer, Rios, Damus and Muriel admitted to going to Roopnarine's Poinciana home to rob him.

Roopnarine was found shot in the face with stab wounds in his neck in July.

In an interview with police, Rios told detectives she got Roopnarine to open the door because he had allegedly offered her money for sex. Once at the home, she said Damus and Shafer came in with Shafer's rifle demanding money.

According to documents, when Roopnarine said he only had $300, Rios said Damus shot him in the face, and then Shafer stabbed him with a kitchen knife.

Detectives said Shafer told them the group expected to find $20,000, but left with the cash.

The group left with a TV, Xbox and a PlayStation.

Shafer admitted to detectives they took the victim's phone and smashed it, hoping to get rid of text messages he exchanged with Rios.

The four are charged with killing Roopnarine. Shafer and Damus are also charged for killing 17-year-old David Guerrero in a string of Osceola County shootings.
