Teen out on bond in fatal 2016 crash arrested in WPB shooting


A teen out on bond in a fatal 2016 crash now faces an attempted murder charge in a shooting Tuesday morning at a West Palm Beach apartment complex. 

Marauavious Hill, 19, of Riviera Beach was arrested late Thursday for reportedly shooting at a man and his sister shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Palm Grove Apartments.

Judge Ted Booras on Friday morning ordered Hill held without bail during a bond hearing at the Palm Beach County Jail.

The woman told police she dropped her kids off at school that morning, then received a call from her brother asking to be picked up from a friend’s home. They grabbed breakfast at a McDonald’s and headed to the apartment complex on Australian Avenue north of Palm Beach Lakes  Boulevard.

As they pulled into the parking lot, they noticed a silver four-door sedan close behind them, she said. Then they saw “Q,” as Hill is known, point a gun at them and fire at least four shots. 

The woman pulled her gun and shot back. She has a concealed-carry license, police records state, and immediately turned over her gun to authorities when they arrived at the scene. She said she was terrified Hill would kill her and her brother. Neither was injured. 

The woman said that about a month ago, Hill fought her brother at the same apartment complex and threatened to kill him, she said. 

At least two people have been fatally shot at that complex, according to a Palm Beach Post database. Taurean Lewis, 30, was killed and two others injured in a July 2015 shooting. Earnest Fulton Jr. was shot there in December 2012 and died nearly two years later from those injuries. 

Court records show Hill is facing charges in a 2016 crash that killed a motorcyclist not far from the Palm Grove Apartments. Authorities say Hill changed lanes along Australian Avenue and hit a motorcycle, throwing the passenger and driver from the bike. Hill then reportedly hit a billboard by Palm Beach Lakes Avenue and reversed the car into the motorcyclist, once again hitting him. 

Jerry Parker, 62, spent 25 days in St. Mary’s Medical Center’s intensive-care unit before he died Oct. 5, 2016. 

Hill has never had a driver’s license, records show, and reportedly lied to police about the crash. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges. He has a status check in May on that case, court records show.
