Canadian Diplomat’s Son Allegedly Involved in South Fla. Drug-Related Shootout Wants Bail

Marc Wabafiyebazu

The son of a Canadian diplomat is hoping to be released from custody on bail after allegedly being involved in a marijuana-related South Florida shootout that left his older brother and another teen dead, the New York Post reports.

Marc Wabafiyebazu’s attorney, Curt Obront, will ask a judge on Wednesday to set bail for the 15-year-old, who faces charges, including murder, in the March 30 shootings. Obront is arguing that there is limited evidence that the teen fired any shots.


Wabafiyebazu’s older brother, 17-year-old Jean Wabafiyebazu, and 17-year-old Joshua Wright were both killed in what police describe as an attempt by the young trio to rob marijuana dealers. The brothers’ mother is Canada’s consulate general in Miami, Roxanne Dubé.

According to the Post, the incident occurred shortly after the brothers moved from Ottawa, Ontario, to be with their mother in Florida.


Two other young men were also charged in the incident.
