Cesar Miller, owner and operator of the Merced Flower Shop, was charged with the murder of John Foyt.
Miller was charged last month with killing 20-year-old John Foyle in the city’s North Park neighborhood.
He was being held at the Jefferson County Jail without bond at the time of his arrest.
The two men had been involved in a domestic dispute that led to Foys death, according to the Merceso Police Department.
Foy had been shot once in the chest in the early morning hours of March 13 and died two days later.
Miller, a white man, has been charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder.
Miller has not entered a plea to the charges, and his next court appearance is scheduled for April 25.
The Merced Police Department was called to the scene after a report of shots fired around 7 a.m. and discovered Foy suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
According to police, Miller then pulled a gun from his waistband and shot Foy several times in the head.
A police dashcam video shows Foy, who was seated in his car in the parking lot, walking away from Miller with his hands up.
Police say the shooting then escalated, with Miller firing multiple rounds into Foy’s vehicle.
After Foy fell to the ground, Miller ran out of the parking area and fired more rounds.
Miller then turned around and ran back into the store, police said.
The footage shows the suspect walking into the flower shop where he was seen picking flowers and selling flower accessories, according the Merci Police Department Facebook page.
The video also shows Miller getting into a white Toyota Camry and leaving the flower business.
Police said the suspect was wearing a black mask and carrying a knife.
He also wore a white mask, black clothing and a white hat.
He is described as 6 feet tall and weighing about 250 pounds.
Foyle’s mother, Rose, was in the flower sales and was able to get to her son’s car after the shooting.
She told KABC the suspects’ mother was shocked by the shooting, according with a report by the Associated Press.
“I was horrified,” she said.
“When I came home I couldn’t believe it.”
Rose Miller told KABB that she was shocked at what had happened to her nephew.
“It just breaks my heart, especially when he was the best friend of mine,” she told Kabc.
“He was the kindest person.
He loved everybody.”
The shooting comes after the city of Mercese has been plagued with violence since the end of last year.
In March, three men were charged with felony murder in connection with the death of a 26-year old man, identified as T.J. Turner, who lived in the neighborhood.
Two men were also charged with aggravated assault in the death.
The men were all released on bond.
A third man who was arrested in connection to Turner’s death was later convicted on other charges.
The violence erupted after the arrest of a black man who allegedly killed a white woman during a robbery, and a dispute between a black couple who had recently split up and another black couple.
The police investigation found the shooting of Foy may have been an act of domestic violence.
Miller is scheduled to be back in court on April 25, when he is expected to be arraigned on the charges.
