The two men met up around 5 a.m. Friday. As the morning progressed, they added vodka and more molly to the mix, according to the sheriff’s office. After reportedly selling some heroin, they decided to go to Andrew’s sister in the West Park neighborhood of Carver Ranches.
As Andrews worked on a white Buick backed into the driveway at his sister’s home, Lee took a shotgun out of a Cadillac, which was parked next to it, and put it in the trunk.
Once the shotgun was in the trunk, Lee tried to unload it but it went off. The shot ripped through the side of the Cadillac’s trunk and hit Andrews in the face. He died on the scene.
Lee is now charged with manslaughter with a firearm and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.MORE NEWS: WalletHub Survey Ranks Florida Second Most 'Fun State'; Miami Nightlife: 'Anything, But Affordable'
