MIAMI (CBSMiami) -- Crime scene photos have been released in the investigation of a shooting that left one son of the Canadian consul General in Miami dead and the other facing murder charges.

Blood, money, drugs, and weapons all appear in crime scene photos released by the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office on Friday.

Marc Wabafiyebazu, 15, is charged with felony murder in the shooting that killed his 18-year old brother Jean Wabafiyebazu as well as Joshua Wright and left two others injured.

Prosecutors said the shootings happened as the Wabafiyebazu brothers were attempting to rob drug dealers.

The evidence photos paint a graphic picture of the bloody scene inside the Miami apartment. Some photos show blood soaked clothing. Others show a blood-covered floor.

Evidence markers are seen lining the floor and there are bullet holes in the walls.

Photos also show what appear to be bags of marijuana as well as multiple guns and shell casings.

Other pictures show cash and some of that cash appears to be stained with blood.

Another photo shows the car with consulate plates.

In court earlier this week, a judge discussed the use of that car while denying bond for Marc Wabafiyebazu despite his mother's promise that her son would follow all pretrial release rules.

"What impressed me the most, or did not impress me, is she was irresponsible enough to allow an 18-year old teenager to drive a consul's car with consulate plates," said Judge Teresa Pooler on Wednesday.

The judge determined Wabafiyebazu is a flight risk and will remain behind bars until his trial.

In the evidence photos taken after the shooting, you can see Wabafiyebazu being photographed by police. In one picture he holds out his hands.

Wabafiyabazu is being charged as an adult. He has pleaded 'not guilty.'
