Phoenix police on Monday released the booking photo of a teen accused of shooting and killing a 16-year-old boy who tried to stop the gunman from robbing his sister.
Vincent Quimayousie, 18, was arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder, two counts of armed robbery and one count of aggravated assault in Thursday's death of Andrew Murphy.
Quimayousie was taken into custody that night after police set up a large perimeter in the area of Marivue Park, where the shooting occurred.
Phoenix police found Murphy shot in the chest near the restroom at the park near 5500 W. Osborn Rd. about 8 p.m. He later died at a Phoenix hospital.
Police believe the shooter had first robbed another teen at gunpoint in the park's playground, then tried to rob Murphy's 14-year-old sister.
Because Quimayousie's name and photo were not released last week, detectives were able to successfully identify another victim, said Officer James Holmes of the Phoenix Police Department.
Police are asking people who may have had contact with Quimayousie, or who may have information about the investigation to call the Phoenix Police Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
On Saturday evening, hundreds of people gathered at the same park for a candlelight vigil. Hymns offered comfort as family and friends held tight to one another.
Funeral arrangements have been made for Sunday, Sept. 23 at Beacon Light Seventh Day Adventist Church at 2602 N. 51st Ave. in Phoenix. Viewing will be from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. with services at 11 a.m.
People can donate to the family at any Wells Fargo Bank for the Andrew Murphy Memorial Fund..
