FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A man allegedly behind the wheel of a hit-and-run in Wilton Manors that left two children dead and sent four others to the hospital appeared in court on Wednesday morning.
Sean Charles Greer appeared in court after, investigators said, he confessed to his involvement in Monday afternoon’s crash in the area of Northwest 24th Street and Ninth Avenue that injured four children and killed two others.
Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives confirmed they took the 27-year-old into custody on Tuesday.
“It’s just tragic, man. You know, it hurt me so much,” said Gregory Holcomb. “You know what I’m saying, of what happened to them.”
Holcomb is the grandfather of 6-year-old Andrea Fleming and 9-year-old Draya Fleming. The youngest wouldn’t survive, and big sister Draya is still in the hospital.
Audio from the court hearing captured an outburst from Greer.
“You can’t make me stay in this,” he could be heard saying.
Corrections officers took him out of the court hearing before they returned without him, saying he did not want to come back in front of the judge.
The 27-year-old is accused of killing Fleming and 5-year-old Paris Kylie Jones.
Family friend Mallory Frederick said Jones, the youngest of three children, had only recently turned 5.
“She was so sweet, she was so happy, just a beautiful little girl,” she said.
In addition to 9-year-old Fleming, the surviving victims were identified as 10-year-old Johnathan Carter, 2-year-old Audrea Fleming, and 9-year-old Laziyah Stukes. They were all transported to Broward Health Medical Center for treatment.
“I think he’s a sick person, man, and then to find out he was already in probation, you know what I’m saying? House arrest or whatever it was, and still out there driving in the street like that. Driving like a bat out of hell man,” said Holcomb.
Greer faces a list of charges, including two counts of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, tampering with evidence and driving with a suspended license. He was also on probation for burglary of a dwelling in Broward County.
He also attempted to flee again in court Wednesday.
Greer is being held without bond.
“One child, after two child… none of them. How in the world do you hit six children and you just keep going?” said Frederick.
