DANIA BEACH, FL – On Thursday, Jose Oscar Soltren Echevarria, 24, following an investigation in which detectives determined that he was responsible for the shooting death of a 32-year-old woman. The shooting took place a week earlier at Rookie's Ale House on Griffin Road, during an argument between the accused killer and another man.
The victim, Marissa Harris, had no connection to either man and was simply a “bystander,” according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office.
“That is really scary considering my son plays outside,” said neighboring business owner Kelli Shealy. “It could happen at any time. We have had a couple of incidents where cops have been called out here because of some drunkenness going on.”
Echevarria has been charged with manslaughter, carrying a concealed firearm and possession of a weapon or ammo by a convicted felon. He is currently being held at the Broward County Jail.
Anyone with any information about the fatal shooting is urged to call BSO Homicide Detective Samantha Cottam at 954-321-4544.
