Suspect Accidently Calls 911, Recording His Murder Plan

OAKLAND PARK (CBSMiami) – A man, before fatally shooting another man on I-95, accidentally called 911 which recorded his plan for murder.

Scott Simon was arrested Tuesday night for the murder of 33-year-old Nicholas Walker, who was shot while driving his car onto I-95.

It was a butt-dialing blunder that led police to the man they say orchestrated the fatal shooting. Now they’re looking for his co-conspirators.

In the accidental phone call to 911, Simon is recorded telling someone else that he’s going to follow the victim home and kill him.

Simon has been charged with first-degree murder for his involvement in the killing of Walker on May 5th, although Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives don’t believe he was the one who fired the gun.

According to reports, Simon coordinated the shooting after an argument with Walker at a nearby Waffle House.

Deputies arrived at the scene at 6:40 AM and found Walker’s Buick crashed into a guard rail. After a fire was put-out, police found Walker dead of gunshot wounds.

Detectives are asking for help in identifying two other suspects. Surveillance video shows a man they believe to be involved in the murder. The suspects were driving a black 2012 Buick GS on the night of the incident.

Anyone with any information are encouraged to call Det. Bryan Tutler at (954) 321-4281 or reports can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at

Any information that leads to an arrest will be rewarded up to $1,000 by Crime Stoppers.
