The suspect, Keith Moses, is facing a first-degree murder charge in the death of Nathacha Augustin, whom he had killed earlier in the day at the same scene.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina said Moses would also be charged with homicide in the deaths of T’Yonna Major, 9, and reporter Dylan Lyons, 24.

Bodycam video of Moses’ arrest was released Thursday.

The sheriff said Moses is a known gang member, but the shootings were not gang-related.

According to court records, Moses has been arrested more than a dozen times.

At only 19 years old, Moses has a lengthy criminal history, with charges beginning in 2018 when he was only 14.

Many of those records are sealed, but a Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrest history shows it includes several domestic violence battery charges, attempted robbery with a firearm and grand theft of a motor vehicle.

Most of those charges were dropped or adjudication withheld. Moses was sentenced to community service.

The arrest history also shows several probation violations, with one sentencing provision listing him as “low-risk.”

His most recent arrest was in 2021. An arrest affidavit shows an officer was patrolling Pine Hills when they saw a vehicle with Moses as a passenger.

The affidavit said an officer noticed people in the car were smoking cannabis, and as deputies approached them, a stolen forearm was tossed from the car.

Moses faced a misdemeanor charge from that arrest.

Ninth Circuit State Attorney Monique Worrell said Moses’ only adult offense was possession of 4.6 grams of marijuana.
