Authorities have confirmed the arrest of a 17-year-old teenager at the Sunrise Walmart supermarket, who will be the sister of the suspect who allegedly shot a Hollywood officer in an incident last week.
The purpose of this is to interrogate her for the theft of the gun, which is said to have killed her brother Jason Panagas officer Yandy Sirino.
According to authorities, Jason Panegas’ younger sister was taken to a juvenile assessment center because he was wanted for questioning over the alleged theft of a weapon that allegedly killed his brother officer Yandy Sirino last Sunday night.
Authorities say the weapon used by Panegas to assassinate the Hollywood police officer and the weapon recovered at the scene were stolen on Sept. 14.
According to the incident report, the owner of the gun said he picked up two young women he knew and one of them took the gun from the glove box of his car. Through a photo, the woman identified Jason’s sister as one of the women.
Hollywood police chief Chris O’Brien has said Jason Panagas has been charged with shooting a 28-year-old officer in the face during a warning call about a suspicious incident near the Emerald Hills Country Club.
Authorities came to the neighborhood last Sunday after residents warned about a young man on a bicycle who was checking vehicle door handles in parking lots.
He was shot in the Hollywood area and died at the hospital
Although Sirino was transferred to a nearby hospital, he died in the incident. Panagas was arrested at the scene and remanded in custody the same night.
Panacea was released from a Miami-Tate County jail last month and faces charges of robbery, robbery and possession of cocaine, court records show.
He is currently incarcerated in Broward County Jail for premeditated murder, violent confrontation with an officer, armed robbery and major theft of a firearm.
18-year-old Jason Panegas is in the Broward County Jail. He told authorities he wanted to commit suicide, not kill the policeman. A post appears on her sister’s social networks – it has already been deleted – and she defended him.
“He turned his shotgun on himself when apprehended by a police officer on the porch of the house where the shootings took place,” said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
Officer Sirino has been in the Hollywood Police Department for four years and was named Officer of the Month in June 2020. His funeral will take place next Monday, November 1 at 10 a.m. at the Florida Live Arena, formerly known as the PP&T Center at Sunrise. .
