Broward Sheriff's homicide detectives arrested 19-year-old Cristofer Ricardo Guzman Aristy for the death of Louis Salvador. Guzman shot the elderly victim while mishandling a handgun.
On the afternoon of May 26, Guzman, Tyron Nathdaneill Arthus and Jordan Jean-Pierre were at Salvador's home, located at 339 S.W. 14th Street in Dania Beach. The trio was inside the house, handling two Glock handguns provided by Arthus.
Salvador was seated in a chair outside the home when Guzman accidently discharged the weapon he was holding.
The bullet passed through the sofa where Jean-Pierre was seated, went through the home's exterior wall and shot 84-year-old Salvador in the back.
He was transported to Memorial Regional Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Guzman fled the home at the time of the shooting but was later picked up on a warrant. He is now facing one count of manslaughter and two counts of cocaine possession.
