Detectives say they had over 100 tips come in one day after announcing a $50,000 reward for Macean's capture. They believe this was a random act of violence.

"This was one of the most brutal murders I've ever seen in my 20-plus years as a police officer in Daytona Beach," said Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young. "We thank the entire Daytona Beach community and the communities around us for providing our detectives with over 100 tips."

Macean went before a judge on Friday. The judge decided on no bond.
