Key West real estate tycoon Lloyd Brewer III accused of shooting man for peeing on wall faces new murder rap

A Key West businessman has been charged with first-degree murder and other charges in the fatal shooting of a high school football coach’s son after the young man relieved himself on a wall at outside a bar.

Lloyd Brewer III, 57, had previously faced a second-degree murder charge for opening fire on 21-year-old Garrett Daniel Hughes on February 13 in front of the young man’s brother outside Conch Town Liquor & Lounge.

Brewer owns the mall that houses the bar on North Roosevelt Boulevard in the New Town neighborhood.

An attorney for the victim’s family told Fox News Digital that Hughes urinated on the wall of a building that didn’t even belong to Brewer.

“This is a violent murder that has devastated the family and, frankly, the city of Key West as well,” said Stuart Grossman, who is suing Brewer for wrongful death on behalf of the Hughes family. “Garrett was well known for his athletic skills and character in Key West.”

His father, John Hughes, is the head football coach at Key West High School, where his slain son was an outstanding athlete in football and lacrosse, Grossman said.

The lawyer also filed a 101-page memo on June 7 in the criminal case opposing Brewer’s bail, arguing that his family’s extreme wealth and prior criminal record make him a risk leak.

The Brewer family trust owns 16 properties in Georgia alone, according to the filing. The indictment with the enhanced murder charge was filed last week.

Brewer told police he did not know Hughes, who was hanging out at the bar that night with his brother, Carson Hughes, and their friends, Blake Arencibia and Logan Pellicier.

Carson Hughes, Arencibia and Pellicier were all employed by the Key West Fire Department at the time, according to court documents.

Shortly after midnight, Garrett Hughes was recorded on grainy surveillance video walking out of the bar shirtless towards the wall of another building.

Brewer can be seen reaching for his belt and crossing the parking lot directly towards Hughes as the young man faces a wall and relieves himself, prosecutors wrote in court documents.

As Brewer advanced, he pointed his gun at Hughes, who was unarmed, prosecutors said.

Hughes graduated from high school in 2020.

“When the accused reached the victim, a brief scuffle ensued. During the scuffle, the accused fired the shot which fatally injured the victim,” the file states. Carson Hughes, who can be seen in surveillance footage, witnessed the murder.

Brewer is also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for threatening Carson with the same weapon he used to end his brother’s life and for violating a concealed firearms permit.

Brewer called 911 and claimed Garrett was the assailant.

“I just shot someone,” Brewer told the dispatcher, according to the 911 transcript obtained by Local10News.

When the dispatcher asked why Brewer had fired, he replied, “He attacked me aggressively in my parking lot in Conch Town.”

Prosecutors say the video contradicts Brewer’s self-defense claim. In the wrongful death lawsuit against Brewer, his family and their businesses, Grossman described Brewer as a “habitual and notorious drunk”.

Grossman called the alleged murder “totally unjustified and premeditated”.

After graduating from high school in 2020, Garrett considered joining the Key West Fire Department like his brother, but instead pursued his passion for diving and fishing, according to his obituary.

He is survived by his father, his mother, Lesley Touzalin, and his five brothers. Brewer is currently being held without bond at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. His attorney, Chris Mancini, declined to comment.
