Marion County Sheriff officers arrested Laquan Barrow, 24, for a fatal shooting at Cloud 9 Monday.

He is charged with second degree murder in the slaying of 19-year-old Benetria Robinson. Barrow is also charged with attempted second degree murder for the injuries of five other people during the Sept. 13 shooting.

Police found Barrow at 5465 SE 30th Place in Ocala, and took him into custody.

The suspect is being held at the Marion County Jail with no bond.

“It was a lot of really excellent detective work that solved this case for us, but it did help to have the public give us some more insight,” said Lauren Lettelier, Marion County Sheriff’s Office public information officer.

Barrow retained an attorney and did not provide any further statements to detectives after being arrested.

This investigation is ongoing.
