Man Arrested For 2014 Murder In Wellington

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office detectives have made an arrest in the murder of Wellington convenience store clerk Shihab Mahmud last year.

Lajayvian D. Daniels, 22, was indicted on a sealed indictment last Thursday by the Palm Beach County Grand Jury for the May 30, 2014 murder of Mahmud.

Mahmud worked as a clerk at the Chevron gas station and convenience store located at 11858 W. Forest Hill Blvd. He was shot and killed during an armed robbery in the early morning hours of May 30.

Daniels became a prime suspect soon after the murder. He has been serving time in the Florida State Prison in Starke on unrelated burglary and grand theft charges since January of this year.

Daniels was picked up by PBSO detectives Tuesday and transported back to Palm Beach County to face charges in the death of Mahmud. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on first-degree murder charges.
