COCONUT CREEK, Fla. - Officers arrested three teenagers in the shooting death of a 56-year-old man, the Coconut Creek Police Department announced on Wednesday night.

Scotty Leamon, a spokesman for the police department, identified the victim as Michael Robin Griffin, who was a father of two and a grandfather. Detectives said he was out about 1:20 a.m. to help a friend buy over-the-counter medication when he was killed in an apparent robbery attempt.

Broward County prosecutors charged 16-year-old Dominic Soto, of Lake Worth, 17-year-old Jason Junior Prendergast, of Port St. Lucie, and 18-year-old Jermaine W. Atterbury, of Greenacres, with murder.

After Griffin's friend told officers he had vanished, his body turned up on the morning of Oct. 12 next to his red Chevrolet Camaro. The crime scene was in the parking lot of the Walmart at 5571 W. Hillsboro Boulevard, in Coconut Creek.

Jason Prendergast, 17, of Port St. Lucie, was charged with murder in the shooting death of 56-year-old Michael Robin Griffin in Coconut Creek.
