Trayvon Mitchell, 38, of Fort Lauderdale, died Sunday around 7:40 p.m. He was suspected of pointing a gun at a man and stealing his book bag at a Plantation bus stop. Mitchell was a former charter schools executive — accused of stealing school board funds.

Lauderhill police released security videos Wednesday of Mitchell that showed him after the armed robbery at 800 N. State Road 7 in Plantation, coming out of a hiding place and apparently carrying a handgun while running through an empty parking lot, Lauderhill Police Lt. Michael Santiago said.

Mitchell was pursued by police officers and K-9s from Davie and Plantation to the backyard of a home in the 700 block of Northwest 39th Ave. in Lauderhill, where he was shot and died, Santiago said.
