A 19 year old black male robbed an Asian nail salon in Miami. After he had gotten the money and was out the door, he suddenly decided it would be fun to shoot and kill a ten year-old.
There was no reason for Anthawn D. Ragan Jr. to fire the gun. He and his accomplice already had the panicked customers’ purses, had what little money was in the register at Hong Kong Nails in Miami. But with both feet outside the swinging door, surveillance footage captured Ragan Jr. firing three shots on Friday, taking the life of a boy who was helping at his family’s nail salon, and wounding his father — a former Marine who is now mourning the loss of his son.
Police have charged Ragan Jr. with first-degree murder in the case of Aaron Vu, a 10-year-old boy who liked to play trombone and practice karate, friends told Local 10.
Ragan’s was booked yesterday, on his 19th birthday. At 9:24 p.m., the 5-foot-7-inch man was ushered in to his new home at Miami-Dade Corrections. His last teenage year will be filled with court dates, cell walls, commissary, and visitation.
As Ragan Jr. sits in a cell awaiting arraignment, there’s another 5-foot-7-inch Anthawn Ragan incarcerated in Florida’s prison system: Anthawn Ragan Sr. He was locked up in 1994 on a murder charge — four months before Ragan Jr. was born — and is currently serving a life term under close supervision at Okaloosa Correctional Institution in Crestview, Fla.
