Miami, Florida –A gathering of friends that were watching a Monday Night Football game turns to murder.
Brandon Lapeikis, 19, is accused of fatally shooting his 19-year-old friend Christian Salazar while watching Monday Night Football.
North Miami Beach police say the shooting happened about 10 p.m. Monday as Lapeikis and three friends were watching the game. Lapeikis told detectives at one point he got up and retrieved a pistol from another room, pointed it at Christian Salazar’s head then said, “game over” and pulled the trigger.
