What to Know

  • Zackrus Beckham was booked into jail early Wednesday morning on charges including first degree murder and attempted felony murder.

Police have reportedly arrested two teenagers believed to have fatally shot a pregnant woman outside an Opa-locka home last month while injuring her teenage daughter.

Zackrus Beckham was booked into jail early Wednesday morning on charges including first degree murder and attempted felony murder. The 19-year-old is being held on no bond.

According to the Miami Herald, a 15-year-old teen was arrested last week for his involvement in the case.

The shooting took place on November 26th outside the home located near the 2500 block of Superior Street, where 33-year-old Quantia Curry Golden – who was three months pregnant at the time – was shot multiple times while sitting in a car nearby.

Golden’s daughter, 13-year-old C’lexus Richardson, was shot in the shoulder during the incident and later released from the hospital. Investigators say Golden had just left her job at an area hospital.

The Herald reports the shooting may have stemmed from a gang-related argument on social media and that the victim’s may have been targeted in an effort to eliminate witnesses.

Golden’s brother, Donald Jones, was fatally shot in 2011 in an unrelated shooting that claimed the then 20-year-old’s life.
