A Florida teen has been accused of murder after investigators connected him with two killings in 2022, including the death of his father, law enforcement officials said.

On August 3, 2022, Timothy Dixon, who was 16 years old at the time, was identified as the shooter who killed Shane Payne, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

Several children reportedly were inside the residence when Payne was fatally shot, including one child as young as 4 years old.

Investigators later determined that Dixon had help carrying out the crime from 17-year-old Shane Payne Jr., authorities alleged.

Then, on August 6, 2022, Shane Payne Jr. allegedly fatally shot the alleged accomplice, Dixon, at an apartment complex in Jacksonville, police said.

Dixon later died from his wounds at an area hospital.

Authorities noted the Paynes and Dixon were neighbors at the apartment complex where the shooting occurred.
