Harrowing bank surveillance footage shows the moment a teen murder suspect approached an unwitting ATM customer from behind – seconds before the bloodied victim collapsed in a parking lot.
The footage shows Marcine Bernard Hill, 17, calmly approaching an ATM in North Miami Beach in November. Clad in a black Ecko jacket emblazoned with the words “Kill Batman,” Hill saunters up behind victim Dillon Bud Calvin Steve, who turns around to notice Hill at the last moment.
Steve, 26, quickly glances at his mother’s van in the parking lot before dropping the cash and lunging at Hill. He’s then seen grasping his chest while staggering toward the car before collapsing. He later died at a hospital.
The Miami Herald reports that the footage was released by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office as a grand jury indicted Hill earlier this month on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery.
Hill, who remains in custody, is not eligible for the death penalty since he was a minor at the time of the fatal shooting, but could face up to life in prison if convicted. Initial charges of first-degree murder were filed against him on Nov. 21, online records show.
Hill’s attorney declined to comment on the video, according to the Miami Herald.
Investigators said after the shocking killing that they considered it to be both a case of Hill stalking his victim and seizing on an opportunity to commit a robbery, the Miami Herald reported in November.
“We are going to catch you,” North Miami Police Maj. Richard Rand told the newspaper in November. “We are going to hunt this person down. This is totally unacceptable.”
