OAKLAND PARK (CBSMiami) – A second man has been arrested and accused of shooting a man after an argument at a Waffle House led to a confrontation on I-95.
Ronel Desinor, 27, was taken into custody Monday and charged with first degree murder.
The arrest comes a month after another man, Scott Simon, was arrested when police discovered his alleged plot to kill Nicholas Walker, 33, was recorded on his cell phone after he accidentally dialed 911. Desinor’s alleged role in the shooting has not been disclosed.
It was the butt-dialing blunder that led police Simon. 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.
According to reports, Simon coordinated the shooting after an argument with Walker at a nearby Waffle House and followed him onto I-95. The suspects were driving a black 2012 Buick GS when someone opened fire. Detectives do not believe Simon is the one who opened fire.
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 believe there may be one other person they want to speak with.
