Defensive lineman Tarrell Greene was charged as an adult in a double shooting that occurred in Fort Lauderdale over the Memorial Day weekend, according to a report from Dillard, Fla. Marissa Bagg on NBC6.
Baggs’ report says surveillance video shows Greene shooting one of the victims after running away from him, and then shooting the second victim while he was riding his bike. As an adult, 16-year-old Greene is charged with aggravated assault and unlawful possession of a weapon.
“Greene was arrested shortly after the shooting and faces charges, including two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and one count of possession of a firearm by a minor.”
The teenager’s defensive line coach, Darel Strong, stood by Greene and insisted he should have acted in self-defense.
Greene was scheduled to play at Plantation (Florida) High School next season. He has offers from over 10 college teams, including AlabamaGeorgia, Miami and Texas A&M.
