NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - A 17-year-old accused of fatally shooting a 15-year-old in Northwest Miami-Dade was charged, Thursday.
According to Miami-Dade Police detectives, their investigation led them to 17-year-old Christopher Stewart, who lives in Miramar, as the subject responsible for the fatal shooting of Callisto Logan, earlier this week.
Thursday afternoon, Stewart faced a Broward County judge. He was charged with second-degree murder and told he will be transferred to a juvenile detention center in Miami-Dade County.
“I don’t know what to say,” said Logan’s mother, Sandra Urena, moments after hearing the news. “They have to be something about it because you can’t go around killing innocent kids for nothing, you understand? My only boy — my baby boy — is gone.”
The news appeared to bring some peace to Logan’s father Johnny Logan. “I finally got a chance to eat, like I said,” he said. “I wasn’t planning on eating until he come to justice. I don’t wish for no death upon nobody, but I wish for justice for anybody.”
Logan’s father went on to question why his son was targeted. “Why would you take my baby, instead of whoever you’re looking for?” he said.
Stewart was arrested, Wednesday, after a warrant for second-degree murder was issued.
Detectives said, on Wednesday, they were able to conduct a traffic stop and make contact with Stewart with the assistance of Miramar Police. After further investigation, he was identified as a suspect, and police arrested him.
Callisto’s parents said they spent the majority of the afternoon making funeral arrangements for their son.
